I am not a fan of bureaucracy. I hate bureaucracy. It's not just its obtuse, inhuman corruption of the experience of living, it's brutal disregard for decency, logic, humanity, sympathy, spirituality, practicality, love, and simple respect, but also its spelling is quite difficult.
I'm not saying I don't know how to spell bureaucracy.
I didn't have to look it up.
But I find it laborious. Typing it is a misery. It seems to demand a great deal of consideration. Its very sounds are weird. It's full of vowels.
So there's a lot there against bureaucracy.
Nevertheless there is one thing I like about bureaucracy.
I work for a library, in a County. And the longer I work there the more they pay me. It's part of their obtuse, inflexible systems. Finally I worked there so long their system said "Give him one last big raise and then never give him a raise again!"
So I got a pretty big raise, a couple weeks ago, all just because I waited in line for it.
For 27 years.

In these days... No, wait, in days past, those of your generation (one generation younger than mine, I'd guess) The message was "You can expect to have 9.6 careers in a lifetime.ReplyDelete
You, my friend, are a statistical anomaly!
