Working with idiots

When I joined UF, in the first-aid box right behind my fume cupboard, was stuck this piece from a newspaper entitled "Working With Idiots Can Kill You! ". (In case the link doesnt work, pl. click here). An interesting piece.. the problem with me was that, after reading that, I used to get more tense when somebody did something stupid.. Then I sat down and thought that, 'mmm.. may be not everybody can be smart in everything.. As someone did something idiotic just now, may be I will do/have done badly to someone else too..' so, two things I decided were: a) Try not to do anything stupid and b) If someone does something obviously idiotic, be happy that I am more intelligent than him/her..

The best (or worst, for the concerned persons) from the article is


A man told us he collapsed right at his desk because the woman at the next cubicle kept asking him for correction fluid -- for her computer monitor.


Enjoy reading and Have a good weekend, friends !!!

Yea GP. I find it difficult to tolerate stupidity. But I am getting better now (in tolerance, that is!).

What happened to your blog title? Why did you change it?

enjoyed it very much.. particularly the last few lines. sometimes others make us more intelligent.... that's true.

Raju said...
