Subject: Upper Management
> ===========================================
> An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand and a bucket of
> buffalo manure in the other.
> He says to the waiter, "Me want coffee."
> The waiter says, "Sure chief, coming right up." He gets the Indian a
> tall mug of coffee, and the Indian drinks it down in one gulp, picks
> up the bucket of manure, throws it into the air, blasts it with the
> shotgun, then just walks out.
> The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand

> He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter, "Me want coffee."
> The waiter says, "Whoa, Tonto! We are still cleaning up your mess

> The Indian smiles and proudly says, "Me training for upper management

Our neighbor manages the local phone company and he got me thinking. We were kidding around about first impressions, and he said there's a surefire shortcut to pleasing directors - turn a bigger profit. The easy way to do that is raise rates a nickel and claim half the new money as a bonus. Oh the Ken Lay approach - Sure, i knew that. :)

Go to most stores and look who made the majority of the producs there. Then think. Managers once knew more about the machinery they manufactured than those lower. They came from the bottom then went up.Henry Ford,George Westinghouse , Marantz, of hi fidelity instruments,There is a long list of old timers who made the USA well known for unique and high quality products..But today you go to a university to learn management.Those who mannage only know how to connive and talk like shysters.That is what they are. That is why we owe Japan trillions of dollars.

Company I worked for was so full of politics I thought I was in Washington DC.

I have noticed they are doing rather poor after a group of us was laid-off after many years.

I could not believe all the crooks & cons they kept. Unbelievable management did not know who was who in their company.
