Hierarchy of Management

This has been posted on the server room wall here (and at the old building) for years, I'm sure it goes back to at least the late 80's. If anyone knows where it comes from I'd be glad to post an attribution.

Hierarchy of Management

The President

Leaps tall building in a single bound
Is more powerful than a locomotive
Is faster than a speeding bullet
Walks on water
Gives policy to God

The General Manager

Leaps short buildings in a single bound
Is more powerful than a switch engine
Is just as fast as a speeding bullet
Walks on water if the sea is calm
Talks with God

The Director

Leaps short building with a running start and favorable wind
Is almost as powerful as a switch engine
Is faster than a speeding BB
Walks on water in an indoor swimming pool
Talks with God if special request is approved

The Comptroller

Barely clears a quonset hut
Loses tug of war with a locomotive
Can fire a speeding bullet
Swims fairly well
Is occasionally addressed by God

The Group Manager

Makes high mark on wall when trying to leap tall building
Recognizes locomotive two out of three times
Sometimes handles gun without inflicting self injury
Treads water
Prays a lot

The Engineer

Climbs the walls continually
Rides the rails
Plays Russian Roulette
Walks on thin ice
Talks to animals

The Technician

Runs into tall buildings
Is run over by locomotive
Is not issued live ammunition
Can stay afloat with life jacket
Talks to walls

The Secretary

Lifts building and walks under it
Kicks locomotive off the tracks
Catches speeding bullets in teeth and eats them
Freezes water with a single glance
Is God
