Hmmmm.... Oddly Familiar
Once upon a time, a government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of the desert. Parliament said. "someone may steal from it at night". So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then parliament said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write
the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Parliament said, "How will we know if the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control Department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports. Then Parliament said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper and a payroll officer, then hired two people. Then Parliament said, "Who will be accountable for all these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary. Then Parliament said, "We have had command in operation for one year and we are over budget by $26,000, we must cut back costs." So they laid off the night watchman.
