The Laws of Work…..

No matter what your job, or where you work, you’ll find that many of these “laws,” sadly, ring true.

Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.

If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Then quit. It’s no use being a fool about it.

Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn’t the work they’re supposed to be doing. 

Important letters that contain no errors will develop errors in the mail. 

If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it. 

You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk. 

People who go to conferences are the ones who shouldn’t. 

If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done. 

At work, the authority of a person is inversely proportional to the number of pens that person is carrying. 

When you don’t know what to do, walk fast and look worried. 

Following the rules will not get the job done. 

Getting the job done is no excuse for not following the rules. 

No matter how much you do, you never do enough. 

The last person that quit or was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Thursday people and whatever you do, 

don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!
