The Working Dead

An employee is a zombie, a set of phantom limbs disconnected from the alien mind that commands them.

Professionalism is about squelching your values in favour of those in your job description — a sheet of paper in a filing cabinet somewhere, ominously collecting dust like the picture of Dorian Gray.

Happy Halloween!

I love my job!

I love being an Office Zombie, it makes all my bosses richer!
