Sam: The Peter Principle, We're All Idiots

Just finished reading The Peter Principle by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull. Interesting stuff. The world is full of idiots because everyone rises to their level of incompetence. Good read. I buy it. 

If you’re smart enough to get to the next level, you’ll move up. You’ll keep moving up until you reach a point where you’ve passed your maximum capabilities and you fail miserably. It’s there you will stay until you die, forever screwing everything up. Multiply that by billions, and there you go. Our world.

Spent the morning demoting everyone in my company just to be safe.

*Editor note: Sam has clearly risen to his level of incompetence.
