Petronius (256 B.C.)

We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any situation by re-organizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

I think it would be fun to go to a job interview with messy hair and crooked tie after bathing in whiskey. Then pop out a bottle of water and drop a couple alka-seltzers in it mid-sentence. I could never pull it off, but it’s fun to imagine.
