quote of the day

We have done work to change attitudes at government offices, but this is a huge organization and it appears there are some employees who haven't been able to change their way of thinking completely.

Not good enough.

Suspended without pay for three months.

Demoted to one level below the employee he harassed.

Placed in the baby name registration department until the employee comes in and registers her new baby. And he has to do it.

So that should be 3 months suspended and then 9 months on the name registration counter. 12 months should be enough to remind him to be human.

No wonder the birth rate is plummeting.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

agree with both of the above.
