Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XV

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:12 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

those guys are tough cookies!
      another suit chimed in.
Weve tried to get them
to step up to the plate
and deal
with our concerns.
Its like speaking
to a stone wall.
I doubt that talking
will do you any good --
at least not with them.
Ive got to try,
      I replied.
There are problems
that need attention.
Success is at stake
our jobs are at stake!
And they need
to do something!
Dont you see?
Ive got to continue
my search for them.
