Honest question: How do disorganized people survive?
Rhetorical question: Shouldn't natural selection have by now removed individuals lacking organizational skills from the gene pool?
You can't depend on survival of the fittest - or neatest - because The Organized are forever dragging everyone else along with them, taking up their slack...and besides, lions prey on the lame not the disorganized....
I've had several friends, and currently suffer from several coworkers, who are so disorganized I don't know how they get themselves bathed, dressed and fed every day.
While these people may appear well-groomed their homes (and vehicles) are inevitably pigs stys. How do you dirty a dish and then leave it laying around for days to get fuzzy and odorous?
How do you drop your clothes where you're standing and then leave them there - as if the Cobbler's Elves will appear in the night and drag your sweat-stained dress into the dry cleaning bag? And then stand idly by as day after day the clothes pile up?
As my mother would ask, "Were you raised in a barn?"
(Which, actually, is a dangerous question to ask in rural Alabama as many people were practically raised in barns).
And HOW can you work - let me qualify that: How can you produce good work - when you have absolutely no concept of filing. Or keeping track of projects (spreadsheets, anyone?). Or arriving on time for meetings. Or...or...or....
There are now television programs dedicated to teaching people how to pick up after themselves. It boggles the mind.
