That’s not my job (poem)

Margaret added a poem to the comments over on the “That’s not my job” post (with the funny images of prime examples of this pervasive mindset). I thought it warranted its own post. Thanks, Margaret!

That’s Not My Job

By Author Unknown

This is a story told about four people named Somebody, Everybody, Anybody and Nobody.

There was one important job to be done.

Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about it because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it. Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

P.S. If anybody knows the author of this poem, please let me know so I can give them due credit. They deserve it.
