Consequence versus convenience ...

21 days (504 hours) on a sailing boat over the Atlantic instead of 8 hours in a plane, what a signal to the global youth by Greta Thunberg. Besides comparing the pure numbers, what level of inconvenience does this way of travelling mean for Greta personally? On a small boat with little space, no privacy, no luxury, possibly bad weather conditions and not a lot to do for a passenger. It is already tough for professional ocean sailers, how hard must it be for a 16 year old? And it was for the second time this time 👍. In combination with the statement on the picture, what a great role model for all age groups and not only her own!! My deepest respect.

I think 'Dilbert' will remain popular as long as employees are frustrated and they fear the consequences of complaining too loudly. 'Dilbert' is the designated voice of discontent for the workplace. I never planned it that way. It just happened. -- Scott Adams, American - Cartoonist Born: June 8, 1957, https://dilbert.com/
