The Plan

In the beginning was the Plan.

And then came the Assumptions.

And the Assumptions were without form.

And the Plan was completely without substance.

And the darkness was upon the face of the Employees.

And they spoke amongst themselves, saying, "It is a crock of shit and it stinks!"

And the Employees went unto their Supervisors, saying, "It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof."

And the Supervisors went unto their Managers, saying, "It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."

And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide its strength."

And the Directors went unto their Executive Directors, saying, "It contains that which aids plant growth and it is strong."

And the Executive Directors went unto the General Manager, saying, "It promotes growth and is very powerful."

And the General Manager went unto the Board of Directors, saying, "This new Plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this organization and these areas in particular."

And the Board of Directors looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good, and the Plan became policy.

And this is how shit happens.
