When Corporate Drones Break-up
Jack & Jill took a break from re-writing mission statements to have a power lunch and to discuss their relationship.
Jack: I think we should recontextualize our situation.
Jill: I tried to incentivize.
Jack: I appreciate the initiatives, if not the methodologies.
Jill: Did you not refer back to the schemas?
Jack: I did. I think the problem is that we differed on our views as to whether or not they were mission-critical.
Jill: I expected a convergence of solutions.
Jack: I expected more proactivity.
Jill: How is the new Blackberry treating you?
Jill: I think that I expected more of a frictionless transition, vis-a-vis our romantic paradigm.
Jack: I concur.
Jill: Are you satisfied with your ROI?
Jack: No. You?
Jack: I am surprised by my own lack of functionality.
Jill: My hopes were for a robust, yet transparent, system.
Jack: Yes! With a synergistic partnership.
Jill: I’ve always seen myself as a bit of an envisioneer.
Jack: We’ve tried to optimize and revolutionize —
Jill: And we’ve tried to strategize and reinvent —
Jill: So, that is it?
Jack: That is it.
Jack: At the end of the day, do you think it was our lack of a holistic approach that did us in.
Jill: Well, that and the fact that it was like pulling teeth to get you to go down on me.
