Liar, Liar, Garbage Cans On Fire

, , , , , , , , | Working | December 30, 2022

Many, many moons ago, I worked in a building where the security team not only guarded at the front desk but also did physical inspections throughout the building.

The security director believed that his staff needed to do more inspections and that to do that he would need more staff and funding.

A part of his evidence for this was the rash of fires that had been occurring across the office paper waste baskets in the building — something his team spotted and dealt with. More inspections would help prevent such incidents before the fire alarms went off, saving the company from paying the fire department.

Unfortunately, despite being responsible for all the security in the building, he forgot that the building had security cameras…. which caught him starting the fires in the first place.

The security team got only one new staff member: a replacement director.
