Sometimes I stumble upon people with what I think is a useless job. Today the office tower I work in here in Bangkok came to upgrade the parking ticket validation machine. Two people came. One person was the engineer, who did the upgrade. It took all of 1 minute. Before he could do that, the other person had to talk a lot about what was happening, carrying a clipboard. After the job was done, someone from my office had to sign the clipboard. The clipboard person didn’t do anything else.
Why oh why do they need to send two people? Couldn’t the engineer have carried the clipboard themselves? Did the “manager" really need to follow the engineer around?
