Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XXVII

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:06 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I know just what you mean,
      she nods
            sympathetically.
Its my understanding
that they are all
in the Line departments
you know, Operations.
Im in H.R.
and were just a
Staff department,
no power or
authority.
We, too, are frustrated
with them,
but theres nothing
we can do.
Its just the way things are.
