Teaching the Chain of Command Rules
In this morning’s Atlanta Journal Constitution:
“As punishment for bad grades, a Georgia mother forced her 12-year-old son to kill his pet hamster with a hammer, police said.
On Friday, 38-year-old Lynn Middlebrooks Geter was arrested, Whitlock said. Geter faces one charge each of animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.”
Wait! I think I have an excellent defense plan for Ms Geter, which of course, I am willing to talk consulting fees with her lawyer.
Basically, Ms Geter was just teaching her son the nitty-gritty of survival; of the chain of command which he will surely find in life.
How many times have you seen an executive decision that really made a mess of things and somebody at the bottom of the food chain gets punished for it?
It is fact of life.
