"The wind does not break a tree that bends".

An old boss of mine would cite that poem to justify giving in to corporate pressures and making decisions that were generally unethical or unfair. Often it was about compromising in situations where someone was going to be treated unfairly.

The job required 24 hours a day monitoring of the network. Shifts were not assigned in any logical or fair manner. The coveted daytime shifts went to the women who typically had the managements ear.

It was no surprise the men often had evenings, weekends, and the dreaded weekend graveyard shifts.
