Joke of the day for January 6

Finding a bright spot in the ominous task known variously these days as “rightsizing” or “workplace reengineering” isn’t easy. But one consultant brought in to help remaining managers through the process of reducing the workforce while maintaining productivity added a contemporary twist to the old classic question.

“What does the optimist say about the glass and the water?” he asked.

“It’s half full,” was the reply!

“And what does the pessimist say?” he queried. “It’s half empty.”

“And, what does the process re-engineer have to say about it?”

Silence – until the consultant revealed the new additional answer: “Looks like you’ve got twice as much glass as you need there!”
