Microstory 432: Floor 10 (Part 1)

Click here for a list of every floor.
Floor 11 (Part 1)

I work on the lower floor of the Research and Development department. Why this company needs two floors of labs, and one of offices, for only R&D is something I couldn’t explain to you. Things are far too spread out, and we’ve hired far too many people. In fact, too many people work at Analion in general. It is not a healthy way to conduct business. First of all, you’re spending too much money of labor. Secondly, all of my coworkers are stupid. If I extrapolate my personal experiences across every floor, it would turn out that we’re composed of at least 80% morons. That is, unless you examine only the executives and board of directors on the higher floors. If you do that, you’ll come to a cool figure of 100% moron. As soon as I started working here, I felt like the smartest person on the planet. I mean, there’s the scientific method, and then there’s doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results. Is my department at fault for Windowgate? Eh, probly. We break a lot of things here. Applying enough stress on any object will always ultimately result in its destruction. Nothing is impervious to force. So if we scrapped every project that couldn’t withstand a nuclear bomb, then we would get nowhere. We sent products down the line that eventually made their way to customers’ homes or businesses that ended up killing them. Sorry. I would like to take the blame for it, but I can’t. I told you that I work with idiots, and I can’t stop them from making mistakes. I know I sound like I’m making excuses, but whatever. I wipe my hands clean. I can’t feel remorse for something I didn’t do. If you don’t like it, you can take it up with my superiors. I consider them responsible for everything anyway.
