What the hell do you say?

I am always amazed at the attitudes of some people. I caught TC and the gang in 3 or 4 major screw ups today. The end point is that is it our fault because no one knows if their job will be there, so why should they expend a great deal of effort doing things correctly.

I tried to point out the very obvious fallacy of their argument, that if they don't bust their ass and do things correctly, they will most certainly be out of a job. But when things are on a power slide, people really don't want to hear it.

So the mailaise has reached its grubby little self across the Pacific Ocean and made a beach head here in the PRC. SO WHAT ELSE IS NEWS. It seems to me that these folks have been waiting for so long for any elite to get squashed that they cannot raise any enthusiasm for the possibility that you might be able to pull it off.

In a world where the winners are vastly outnumbered by the losers (read: the PRC) the losers don't want to give shit when they don't have to. To be honest, it would appear that they kinda hope we can fail because misery loves company.

I still say that this place will cause us to fail. Not that we had all that great a chance in the first place, but by popping on our "stupid-greedy" hats the way we did, it is just a matter of time. I do hope that it takes a while though, the money is good and the savings need to grow.

Walked to work today, 5.5km of a pretty nice walk. I think that I have to make an effort to walk to work in the USA too. An hour isn't that big of a deal.
