Riding A Dead Horse

Old tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. Businesses, however, often try other strategies. These include...

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2. Changing riders.

3. Saying things like "This is the way we always have ridden this horse"

4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.

6. Increasing the standards to ride dead horses.

7. Appointing a tiger team to revive the dead horse.

8. Creating a training session to increase our riding ability.

9. Comparing the state of dead horses in today's environment.

10. Change the requirements declaring that "This horse is not dead".

11. Hire contractors to ride the dead horse.

12. Harnessing several dead horses together for increased speed.

13. Declaring that "No horse is too dead to beat."

14. Providing additional funding to increase the horse's performance.

15. Do a CA Study to see if contractors can ride it cheaper.

16. Purchase a product to make dead horses run faster.

17. Declare the horse is now "better, faster and cheaper."

18. Form a quality circle to find uses for dead horses.

19. Revisit the performance requirements for horses.

20. Say this horse was procured with cost as an independent variable.

21. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.

Good morning everyboomie. wave

It's Wednesday. MAIL DAY!!!!! penguin

If you're not sure what I'm referring to you need to reread the jokes. razz

Doesn't it seem strange that Wednesday falls on the same day every week? headscratch

I thought it rotated back by one day each week.

Did you know that if you were born on February 29th, then you don't really exist, and you don't have to pay income tax? thumbsup

The down side is you probably won't get many birthday gifts either.

I wasn't lucky enough to get out of paying income tax, but since I was born in December I only have to pay tax on my December earnings. bravo

I am SO happy I was not born in January. slapforehead

I hope you guys find something to smile about today. dance

Good morning Boomies.

You make me smile Joe.

Talked to Susie last night. She got the final report and everything is okay. Boy, what a relief. She is feeling much better now. Will get together with them on Sunday.

Got my grocery shopping done. Done shot my wad. Not as much as Bill is going to shoot his on March 25. He is going in to get a couple teeth pulled and fitted with temporary teeth. Two months with them then a permanent bridge. Ouch and ouch. The first one for the pulling, the second for the cost. Oh well, can't take it with us. lol Easy come, easy go.

On that note, I think I will get some coffee and play something.

Have a great day everyone.

Re: Wednesday Hump - 02/27/13 01:57 PM

Good morning or afternoon or evening my dear friends. I miss you all muches kissy and wanted to say hello in person. Our dear Ana is my link to you and I thank you, Ana, from all of my heart!

Situation with Dad is still the same and he is still in the Hospice. I go there with my Mum almost every day because Mum isn't feeling very good herself and needs support.

Hubby and I went to Munich for a few days over the last weekend (Nan, thank you for the Band!!) to celebrate his 60th Birthday.

I'am so sorry I missed quite a few GB member Birthdays. Happy belated Birthday to all I missed wave

It's almost 8 p.m. here in Switzerland and this girl is tired. I try to come to the Diner more often now. I was under the weather a long time , but I guess I'am on the upward path now.

Love to all of you!
