Can you think of something that's broke and still works?


A broken clock will still work by telling the correct time twice a day.

    A broken human being might still work, but not to their best ability. You still need to wind up the mechanism to get her/him going. The offer of a raise might help (even if it's a lie - you can make excuses later, best to keep them hoping).

    You can get an egg out of its shell easy enough - but it's not easy to get it back in again if you change your mind.

    ... Some just go through the motions. I've had too many of them as colleagues in my working life. The only thing I miss being retired is the cash I got with all my overtime and 'perks' (extra pay for working on machines, extra money for shift work).
