people. I kept trying to tell the flight attendent I was disabled, but she didn't care. She laughed at me and told the camera man to get a wide-angle view of me. Next thing I knew, I was on a reality show. Damn this airline.
That post was an OBVIOUS farce meant to be funny or provoking. For some strange reason everytime I pull up the Yahoo LUV board I have to "engage" my ignore again. Tried everything. Too much stuff without the ignore, especially the ""replies"" to those self identified idiots.
Check out www.ethics.org and read about the National Business Ethics survey 2003.
1500 workers interviewed and the results show the most ethical improvement in the environment to be on the frontlines; most problems were with ethics at higher levels. Ironically improvements from 'below' emerged by more focus and attention to the subject from the top, namely, by 'corporate ethics officers.' Unfortunately such ethics officers have less influence at the top than the General Counsels and bevvy of company lawyers. So unless ethics officers report directly to the Boards, who will raise the "eyebrow" when real conflicts of interests come into play, or when buddy Joe allows a wink to buddy Bill to duck that unethical scathing report from the field that is corroborated by numerous complaints? How will a corporate culture be policed that can distinguish between right and wrong actions and borderline cases if there are no 'ethics officers' or toll-free 800-HOTLINES?
