The Peter Principle

Steve Carell Sept. 1

This is a theory that attempts to explain why management is so horrible by postulating that every time a worker is competent at their current job they get promoted, until finally they reach a level at which they can never attain competence, and then they stay at that level forever. I’m going to have to call BS on this one, though, because I have been in the workforce for almost 20 years and I have never seen a competent person get any sort of promotion. 1.3/5



All work is noble. Let me say that. But when busboys clean your table? That’s just a wet rag. Making things wet doesn’t clean them, if it did, you’d never have to flush a toilet and all the dirt would disappear every time it rained. Also, they don’t drive buses and that’s pretty misleading. 1.7/5
