I am sure that in Elbonia cultural sensitivity training consists of explaining how here in the US people warm chairs with their behinds for 10 hours a day to placate the gods of "gainful employment". It is an interesting ritual if you are ever able do observe it, akin to monks sitting on pillars, as it does not appear to matter what people are actually doing during that time.
On the downside I cannot think of any way to exploit this wierd cult to for personal gain.
You are absolutely correct. I was Asok for a time and I survived the first round of layoffs in the company for that very reason...
Sadly, they were forced into a second round ... :-(
Oh well, at least I got to spend the summer studying for the FE exam (no work to do) and got paid for it.
