Apparently we’re all idiots

“Treating your rocket scientist employees as if they were still in kindergarten is not an isolated phenomenon. Almost every company has some kind of incentive program that is insulting and demeaning.” – Joel Spolsky

Sometimes they even post tutorials, complete with little cartoon charictarizations of bacteria, in the bathrooms explaining, to college-educated professionals, how to wash one’s hands.  Helpful hints, for those who have somehow managed to be hired without having any previous interaction with civilization, include:

  • Use soap
  • Rub your hands together
  • Hum “Happy Birthday to You” twice to gauge time
  • Rinse the soap off when you’re done
  • Dry your hands afterward

Mercifully, I have not yet encountered anyone singing in the bathrooms.
