Biblia puturosului

Dupa tragedia tinerei romance care s-a sinucis pentru un salariu pe care nici macar nu avea timp sa-l cheltuiasca, intamplator aflu de cartea unei frantuzoaice care predica puturosenia la locul de munca. In cartea ei "Bonjour Paresse", aparuta in 2004, Corinne Maier declara urmatoarele reguli (ATENTIE! Nu se aplica celor care muncesc din cu totul alte motive decat banii! Restul de 99% cititi urmatoarele):

No. 1
You are a modern day slave. There is no scope for personal fulfilment. You work for your pay-check at the end of the month, full stop.
No. 2
It's pointless to try to change the system. Opposing it simply makes it stronger.
No. 3
What you do is pointless. You can be replaced from one day to the next by any cretin sitting next to you. So work as little as possible and spend time (not too much, if you can help it) cultivating your personal network so that you're untouchable when the next restructuring comes around.
No. 4
You're not judged on merit, but on whether you look and sound the part. Speak lots of leaden jargon: people will suspect you have an inside track
No. 5
Never accept a position of responsibility for any reason. You'll only have to work harder for what amounts to peanuts.
No. 6
Make a beeline for the most useless positions, (research, strategy and business development), where it is impossible to assess your 'contribution to the wealth of the firm'. Avoid 'on the ground' operational roles like the plague.
No. 7
Once you've found one of these plum jobs, never move. It is only the most exposed who get fired.
No. 8
Learn to identify kindred spirits who, like you, believe the system is absurd through discreet signs (quirks in clothing, peculiar jokes, warm smiles).
No. 9
Be nice to people on short-term contracts. They are the only people who do any real work.
No. 10
Tell yourself that the absurd ideology underpinning this corporate bullshit cannot last for ever. It will go the same way as the dialectical materialism of the communist system. The problem is knowning when...

Iata si rezumatul cartii in opinia sa:
"Businesses don't wish you well and don't respect the values they champion. This book will help you take advantage of your company, rather than the other way around. It will explain why it's in your interest to work as little as possible and how to screw the system from within without anyone noticing."

Acum... ce sa zic... Desi vad umorul in cele de mai sus, nu pot sa nu fiu de acord cu ea in cea mai mare parte.

Si ca sa inchei, un citat despre modul francez de munca, extras din cartea unei englezoaice care traieste in Franta:

"Daca traiesti in Franta rurala de exmplu, (...) bancile sunt inchise lunea (bineinteles) asa cum sunt inchise si majoritatea magazinelor.(...) Apoi ai miercurea cand nu e scoala si deci practic si asta e vacanta. Si cum nu prea face sens sa te prinzi cu munca martea pentru o singura zi, ramane doar doar joia si vinerea dimineata. Deci o saptamana de munca destul de lejera, in care e greu sa ingramadesti cele 35 de ore care se cer.

Calendarul nu ajuta nici el. Incepi cu ianuarie care bineinteles coincide cu sezonul de ski - deci e anulat. Apoi muncesti un pic dupa care incepe Postul si Pastele. Poti sa ingramadesti vreo 2 saptamani de munca inainte de 1 Mai, care bineinteles fiind Ziua Muncitorului, nu o lucrezi. Odata ce vine iunie, toata lumea se pregateste de concediul de vara - care se intampla in iulie si august si deci chiar daca tu vrei sa muncesti nu ai cum pentru ca nu e nimeni prin prejur. Apoi vine Septembrie care marcheaza inceputul anului scolar cand toata lumea se reintoarce la munca si scoala. Iti ia cateva saptamani sa te reacomodezi si apoi e timpul sa te pregatesti de Craciun."

Well, un alt exemplu de extreme care impun nevoia unui echilibru. Precar, foarte probabil, dar mult mai sanatos.
