What's good for the goose...
In the early ‘90s, I worked as a pressman for a national newspaper printed regionally in Northern California. After I had been there for about four years, we got a new Production Supervisor. This guy came in from a newspaper in Texas, and on his first day, he toured our press building.
After touring the building, he told our press foreman to get rid of all chairs in the building, because he liked his pressmen to be standing at all times. This is ridiculous, because many jobs we perform are better done when sitting stably, for instance registering and setting color. Our light booths were set up at stool height, as was our press console. Standing before them made no sense; it was awkward and counter-productive. He insisted that we rid the building of all chairs regardless.
About two weeks after his edict went into force, one night, I someone followed the janitor into the new Production Supervisor’s office and removed his $800 Aero-Chair and tossed it into the dumpster.
I hope it improved his job performance.
