Work Fairy Tales

An illustration of how work is going today using children’s tales:

“The sky is falling –  the sky is falling!!”

Me: “Uhm, that’s just rain”

Crowd of people crying about the sky falling looks at each other, then disperses pretending they didn’t do what they just did…

…and I wish there was a fox to eat them.

“There’s a major problem over here – come help!” cried the business analyst.

I run to see what the issue is – to find there is none.

“Oops – I guess there’s no issue” is her reply.

“Look – don’t call me over here unless there IS a problem.”

A bit later “There’s a major problem over here – come help!” cried the business analyst again.

I go to see what the issue is – prepared to resolve it – to find there is none.

Again.

“Oops, sorry – I thought there might be an issue but there is none.”

“Serious,” I tell her, “don’t get me involved unless it is necessary as I don’t have time for this.”

“OMG – there is a HUGE issue – it’s going to keep us from going live – come fix it!!” she exclaims….again…

I ignore her – and wish there was a wolf….

….to eat her.

Yes….there is a theme…..I call it thinning the herd.
