Gravity and the stuff that rolls downhill

There is a well-known and equally accepted principle out there that fecal matter rolls downhill.  You’d think it has behind it years of empirical study, qualified by countless experiments in the movement of mass and the velocity that said mass can obtain when traveling towards the one who’s trying to duck it.  You’d think that but in today’s workplace, there exists an anomaly that threatens to turn the tenet on its head and change the dynamic of the environment for years to come.

It’s recently been discovered that sh…excuse me, crap can jump.

The word, downhill, implies a starting point, most times at the beginning of the chain-of-command.   The mass in question, according to theory (we know now that that’s all it ever was, nothing concrete), will happen upon the top individual and proceed from there to roll downhill, engaging each person below the other systematically until, if need be, it reaches the very bottom of the chain.

Again, that was the theory.

These days, the bulk in question seems to attain enough velocity to propel itself beyond the top dog, and even beyond his second or third or even fourth, minions.   In a hitherto before unknown law of gravity, the said mass seems to drive itself squarely into the lap of the lowest individual on the chain.

In fact, the material seems to have inherent properties of movement, a mind of its own if you will.  At least that’s what the powers-that-be will attempt to extrapolate.

Eyewitness accounts, however, offer opposing notions with an equal amount of questions.

How is it that responsibility is avoided by the ones at the top yet sticks to those of a lesser pay grade?  Is this the new natural way of things?  Further observation will have to be done before any real conclusions can be drawn.

Meanwhile, workers beware.  The laws of gravity and crap cease to exist on our plane as they have done in the past.
