Peter Principle

I was randomly wiki'ing the other day and found this lol called 'Peter Principle'. If u r a Tam and dont even grin, go die.

The Principle as such is brilliant though. It states,"In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence." Looks a lil deceiving , but it basically says that if u dont work, u can kiss growth in that field good bye.

But i liked the way he phrased it. It looks at things in a different, optimistic perspective. He made it sound as if incompetence was a virtue. My appreciation .
btw, more fundaes can be ob found at

No da, it's not 'If you don't work, you cup'. It is just what it says, when you're in positions of your comfort level, you crack it, and thusly get promoted. So you keep moving up, till the level where your personal 'level'(like in insti lingo) is lower than that of the post. And therefore, you cup that post, and that's the point you stop being promoted.
It's much better explained on Howstuffworks :)
