On Abovethelaw. lawyer-journalist, Kathryn Rubino, reports that the Los Angeles office of Milbank Tweet just issued a long memo on how to behave in a civil manner.
It includes proper decorum in spaces ranging from the unisex rest room to one's desk area. There is plenty about keeping the music down. Here you can read that directive.
In such a workplace, many of the employees have law degrees. Members of the staff likely have college degrees and certifications. Yet, the daily environment has been oppressive enough to mandate a detailed list of behavior no-nos. Whatever horrors of disrespect had been taking place? Is the rest room right out of animal house?
On the other hand, here I bunk in fly-over country. The people who voted for Donald Trump live next to me, over me, and across the way from me. The development has 400 units.
In the 3 months I have been living here not once has there be the need for a directive on appropriate behavior. Aside from me and the architect two building down, no one seems to have pursued education post-high school. The most courteous neighbor is a former tow-truck operator.
Is the takeaway here: Fear for your sense of dignity when you are among the highly educated?
