I work for a city government and I've found that the fewer waves I make, the better things are. Usually, everything goes fine if I don't ask anyone to do any actual work and keep the status quo.
All the Civil Service Employees around me aspire to working in the back-room of an undiscolosed location so that they can sleep all day, and leave work early.
My boss told me that I'm pushy.
"I'm not happy with the way things are." I replied, " If I don't push, nothing changes."
