Once upon a time the government had a vast   scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress   said “someone may steal from it at night.” So   they created a night watchman position and   hired a person for the job.     Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do   his job without instruction?” So they created   a planning department and hired two people, one   person to write the instructions, and one person   to do time studies.     Then Congress said, “How will we know the night   watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they   created a Quality Control department and hired   two people.  One to do the studies and one to   write the reports.     Then Congress said, “How are these people going   to get paid?”  So they created the following   positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer,   then hired two people.     Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for   all of these people?” So they created an   administrative section and hired three people, an   Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative   Officer, and a Legal Secretary.     Then Congress said, “We have had this command in   operation for one year and we are $18,000 over   budget, we must cutback overall cost.”     

So they laid of the night watchman
