Six Sigma

Benefit or Process Improvement waiting to happen.

In my new role as Integration Lead, I hold a 1pm integration meeting with Beale and Fylingdales as well as local staff. Part of the meeting involves going through an excel spreadsheet which contains STRs being worked and their status. I control which part of the spreadsheet is viewed. To accomplish this, I tell the guy I'm sitting next to, 'okay, next slide' or 'scroll up' or 'scroll down' etc.

It is only this way because that is how it has always been. Is this meant to be a showing of power? Is this a perk? Should I just take control? Is this worthy of six sigma attention?

In case I ever need to take that trip to Huntsville, AL.

"Two hillbillies walk into a bar. While having a shot of whiskey, they talk about their moonshine operation. Suddenly, a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough. After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in real distress.

One of the hillbillies looks at her and says, "Kin ya swallar?"

The woman shakes her head no.

"Kin ya breathe?"

The woman begins to turn blue and shakes her head no. The hillbilly walks over to the woman, lifts up the back of her dress, yanks down her drawers and quickly gives her right butt cheek a lick with his tongue. The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm and the obstruction flies out of her mouth. As she begins to breathe again, the hillbilly walks slowly back to the bar.

His partner says, Ya know, I'd heerd of that there 'Hind Lick Maneuver', but I ain't never seed nobody do it!"
