An engineer I work with is well known for his mediocrity, and he thrives on it. No matter how bad he messes up, he never gets fired.
When i joined the company i posed the question of “why not fire him then?”, it turns out that the paperwork involved for firing someone due to mediocrity is much more difficult than the level of his mediocrity.
he’s a surfer. he just rides the waves of other people’s work, completely at peace. I hate him.
