All cogs break loose

All cogs break loose

This morning, one of the factory machines stopped working – something wrong with a cog, it seems. If we don’t get it back in production ASAP we will fail orders. It will costs money and credibility.

John McChief spent the time pointing the finger at Sam McCable and Steve McGreasy, Head of Factory Operations.

I kept wondering why the incident was not avoided: the factory workers knew this was going to happen. I heard them talking about it in the cafeteria a couple of weeks ago. Did they not report it to someone in charge? If not, why not? If they did, did that someone fail to act on the information?

I’m bracing myself for tomorrow: I fear it’s gonna be another stressful day.
