It's Company Policy

It's Company Policy
*Put eight monkeys in a room. In the middle of the room is a ladder,

leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling.

*Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are

sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable.

*Soon enough, whenever a monkey
attempts to climb the ladder,
all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed,
set upon him and beat him up.

Soon, none of the eight monkeys
ever attempts to climb the ladder.

*One of the original monkeys is then removed,
and a new monkey is put in the room.
Seeing the bananas and the ladder,
he wonders why none of the other monkeys
are doing the obvious.
But undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder.

*All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly.
He has no idea why.
However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.
*A second original monkey is removed and replaced.
The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder,
but all the other monkeys hammer the crap out of him.
This includes the previous new monkey,
who, grateful that he's not on the receiving end this time,
participates in the beating because
all the other monkeys are doing it.
However, he has no idea why he's attacking the new monkey.
*One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced.
Eight new monkeys are now in the room.

None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water.
None of them attempt to climb the ladder.

All of them will enthusiastically beat up
any new monkey who tries,
without having any idea why.

Haven't we also behaved like that so many times???
Following the herd without any reason???
And having being stopped from doing something
without any reason too???

Well, you now know
why that happened??

You might want to take a break here and continue with the rest
of the issue later on if this has set you thinking ...
The article pretty much says everything without my having
to add anything from my side ..
So, what was I talking about in YOU and Me singing??

Precisely ...
YOU and ME singing ..
So you respond and I'll sing in response ...
