Denis Waitley tells of an office worker who was going through some old files in 1958. These were the rules of conduct for employees he found, issued in 1872:

∙ Office employees each day will fill lamps, trim wicks, and clean chimneys. Wash windows once a week.
∙ Each clerk will bring in a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's business.
∙ Male employees will be given an evening off each week for courting purposes, or two evenings if they go regularly to church.
∙ Every employee should lay aside a sum of his earnings for the benefit of his declining years so that he will not become a burden to society.
∙ The employee who has performed his labor faithfully without fault for five years will be given an increase of five cents per day in wages, providing profits permit it.
--Denis Waitley, The New Dynamics of Winning (New York:  Morrow, 1993), 77-78.

I wonder how we're treating each other today will appear to our descendants?

i for one hope bankster kleptocrats will be extinct and seen from our descendants' historical perspective as the naked emperors they are, whose greed and hubris are unequalled, i think, in human history. but don't get me started or i'll say what i really think. :-\
