Mistakes at work
Chris Grayling made one five years ago which has cost tax payers £500 million - privatisation of the probation service.

How would anyone remain in a job if this happened in the private sector and had to answer to share holders?

The bit that mystifies me about Christianity is the belief that God made us all in his own image, and put us on earth with free will, so he could test us.

Because that’s what you’d do if you were a god, isn’t it - create things then see how they get on when you put a few traps in the way. Maybe rub a few out with an earthquake or plague and see how they react.

We're shit and unworthy, but he died for us anyway.

I wish he had thought that through properly.

Re: Mistakes at work
You make a good point Eerie,
Galatians 4: 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son.
Romans 5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

The appointed moment in God's redemptive plan. Christ died for the ungodly (you and I). Christ's love is grounded in God's FREE GRACE and is not the result of any inherent worthiness found in its objects (humankind). In fact it is lavished on us in spite of our undesirable character.

Some Christians further believe that because of the transport infrastructure created by the Romans that allowed many parts of the Roman empire and beyond to be accessable to everyone, Christianity was spread in a way that was impossible before Roman occupation.

Hi Eggburt,
People went to heaven in old testament times. My quote from the Bible applies from when Jesus began His minestry.

Re: Mistakes at work
Came back to the office with a colleague about 7pm one evening after an afternoon 'out'. Went through the pair of doors out of the lift lobby, my colleague barged into one side of the doors - it jumped off its hinges and fell on top of me, pinning me to the floor. Managed to get out and stood the door up against the wall and went home.

Went in the next day and the door was back on, so said nothing. There was an email waiting for me from our Helpdesk, titled : 'its all on CCTV'

Made redundant three months later...........cant think why.

To quote the Bible ROI Christ is the way, the truth and the light. No one comes to the father except through me (Christ).


but what about all the people born before Jesus lived? they're fucked I take it?

seems a little unfair

Reorganisations are the big give-away.

Anything less than 2 years between significant company/department reorganisations is a sure sign that those "in charge" really haven't got a fucking clue how life works in the real world and that their underlying business process is a pile of dog's eggs.

Do you need to be told when to go to bed, too, or is that the one thing in life you can work out for yourself?

I find it funny how they keep on coming up with 'new initiatives', that they give a fancy name too, design a fancy logo for, present to each other to great acclaim, before it reaches the real people who shrug, ignore it and it all quietly fades away.

Only for the process to be endlessly repeated under different titles once the previous effort has been dead and forgotten for long enough...

Re: Mistakes at work
I'm sure that there is a school of thinking that runs along the lines of making/allowing mistakes to happen just so that they can charge in like some knight on a big white horse (can I still say "big'?), save the day and get shit-loads of attention/brownie points.

In my experience, most senior leaders, certainly at 6 figures plus, are completely unaware of their own incompetency - and its this ignorance that takes them there.

Whilst out in Afghan, I broke a brand new £80k satellite system when it fell off the AC unit we set it up on.... cos I was posing for "war story" pictures.

Got away with it :)
