A common story to some organizations...Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody
and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that
Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did.

Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that
Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what
Anybody could have done!

2. Here's another organizational fable:

We have done so much, for so long
With so little,
That now we can do anything with nothing.

4. Also used to say....

We can do anything except weld the crack of dawn and put wheels on a miscarriage.

That was a sign in our metal shop.
