Shocked health workers in the United Kingdom were asked recently to compare their bosses to Adolf Hitler. According to the Times Online, the survey demanded that staffers rate Hitler’s “coolness” on a scale of 1 to 5, as part of a ridiculously misguided training program for Britain’s National Health Service’s West Midlands Strategic Health Authority. Times Online reports:
One ambulance employee, who did not want to be named, said: “I’ve never been asked to compare my boss with Adolf Hitler before. It’s the most bizarre work survey I’ve ever had to take.”
Workers were also asked if being gay, funny or black made a leader cool. Such an all-inclusive, politically correct question would not fly with would-be fascists.
