Default Company Policy


Not so much funny as sad

Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a
string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the
stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs,
spray all of the other monkeys with cold water.

After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result all the
other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey
tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace It
with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To
his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another
attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be
assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new
one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer
takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original
monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest
monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating
him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are
participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have
ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches
the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know that's
the way it's always been done around here.

And that, my friends, is how company policy begins

Does it fucking matter if it had been posted before? Did typing that give you what you needed to wet your pants this morning?

If it's been posted before, either, (1) Don't read it, or (2) Click BACK on your browser and move on to the next one.

Yes, as it has been said I posted this a few weeks ago but I find it funny.

Now even more people get to see it. And that's a good thing.

Last time I saw this on this board was a few months back...

And if something was posted before. But is not on the first or second page, then you do NOT need to say "its been posted before"

And this is rather amusing to read

Not everyone has time to troll the boards like you and read every single post. Get a life man. OH, and here is a nice big mug of STFU!
