The "management experts" would not have gotten Winston Churchill at all....the donut remark reminds me of a donut shop that was located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. They made a coconut German cake donut that was to die for - boy, I miss those....have a great weekend, everybody...khp<><
Personally I have this theory that the PHB had fired Carol lots of times already, because he is on to her and he has no reason not to get rid of her. But within a few days every administrative assistant he hires as replacement magically transforms into a Carol. It's partly his own horrible influence (because someone working this closely with the PHB has to develop a Carol-personality out of sheer self defense) and partly karma (because the PHB doesn't deserve any better). So no matter what he does, Carol will always be sitting right outside his office.
