I have had a few weird and unusual experiences in my life, especially, in the workplace. Those experiences compelled me to wonder about the work ethics that are followed in these places as many of such practices adversely affected my career as well as others too.
But before beginning what I endured let's read a story first:-
The Story of a gem-cutter
Once upon a time, there was a gem-cutter who was not so skilled in his trade. But he was a favorite of his master.
One day his master gave him a very precious stone to cut into a beautiful piece of jewel. The gem-cutter could not do it properly. He broke it into several pieces.
His master realized his mistakes and soon replaced him with a skilled one. The new gem-cutter collected the pieces of this broken gem and cut each one of them beautifully. They are now smaller in size but they shone brilliantly.
The mistake done by the jewel shop owner was that he relied on somebody based on favoritism and not on the skills he possessed to perform a task and this led to the disastrous result.
