Stupid Season

Ever notice how, when you have a group of employees, that the 'summer' season is equivalent to the 'stupid' season?  It's like a part of their brains melt away with the winter snow and they become barely trainable vegetation that somehow manages to clean and dress themselves before arriving for work where they spend half the time daydreaming about being out camping or some such stupid stuff like that. 

I'll be glad when next week comes.

It shouldn't make a difference but it does.

I blame the school system.  Really.  We train our children from an early age to take a holiday, mental as much as anything for two months and a bit and so they switch off whatever small assemblage of cells they use as brain matter and go into a sort of mental hibernation.  The only good thing about it is that we also train them to switch back on in early September. Same with employees. Don’t even try to train them in the summer. The best you can hope for is that they don’t make things worse.

I think we should just ban summer holidays, make the teachers earn their pay or give good experience to substitutes and student teachers.  Really.  Then maybe our kids will slowly become able to compete with their Asian brethren who we are so quick to make fun of as they run circles around us in math and science competitions. They do so because they work harder.  They aren't smarter, they fucking work harder and study harder and their parents haven't forgotten the value of a good beating when they fuck up their school.

Man, that felt good to say.

Our kids are just as smart, but they're twice as lazy.

Spare the rod and spoil the child.  Well, I'd say taser, but some liberal violence hater might take offense.
