"Today's marknadsprofeter is that yesterday's communists"
"the other Day, told the News that it will be re-election in Falun. Postnord would deliver a sack of förtidsröster but it was delayed. Final delivery would be before 9: 00 am Wednesday, 12 september, but the clock 14.30 called Postnord announced that it received an additional bag with the votes."
"the Election commission in Falun, sweden could not, however, count on these. It had been against the law to add to the votes, since the bill started."
"In hindsight it turned out that the 145 late votes changed the election results in the Falun municipality. On the Left, have a voice to had the party taken a mandate from the Conservatives."
"So because of a delayed postsäck shall the election be made. The cost will be two million."
"On its web site, Postnord a tab with the title ”Now we are improving ourselves”. Where tells the company that it is very complicated to transport and distribute letters. ”There is a lot that can happen on the road,” says production manager Mathias Krümmel."
"I'm always suspicious of companies and authorities that should tell you how difficult their work is."
"When I put a stamped envelope in the box, I buy a service. The self-pitying inkompetensens confessions, I am not interested."
"another heading tells us that Postnord is working with continuous improvements. It to sound reassuring but even here I become suspicious. Continuous improvement is so general that it becomes meaningless."
"Maybe it would be better if Postnord worked with improvements Wednesdays 14-15, perhaps, would something be done then, because the improvements seem to really be needed. The production manager Krümmel says:"
"– in the Past we solved the problem for the moment but looked not always the cause."
"At a trucking company that solves the problem for the moment, it may sound like this:"
"Jones! Now the truck's engine cut again. Wow! Then we need to replace the motor. Karlsson! The engine has cut once! Oh, oh, oh! Then we switch again, it will be the third time this week!"
"Then will someone, perhaps a hired management consultant, maybe he's changing the engines, perhaps the chief financial officer that think that it is getting expensive with ever-new engines – someone will, in all cases, one should examine why the engines cut. This someone will find the answer is:"
"It says that they must be refuelled with diesel. But we have filled the tank of gasoline."
"Well done," says the supreme head. We appoint an investigation for the to ensure that this does not happen again. We need to review our procedures."
"I'm calling Postnord and asks why postsäcken not arrived in time. The team of press officers Maria Ibsén say that Postnord do not agree with Falun municipality ”on how we should interpret the situation”."
"Agnes Karlsson, regional manager at Postnord, says that there are two agreements between the company and the city of Falun. One says that the municipality should collect their mail. The other says that the election commission during the two days would get the bags with förtidsröster delivered to them."
"the Conflict is about a bag that, on the one hand contained förtidsröster but that Postnord on the other hand, the view that Falun municipality and the caretakers would have taken."
"What I describe here is no jätteskandal, there is no Watergateaffär, no electoral fraud, à la Syria, no förgiftningstragedi à la Bhopal."
"Damn, this is a postsäck, wow, a lot of ballots, shucks, now they have to do."
"It is a incorporated and privatised society, with everywhere slim organizations, a hypereffektivt and stressed a society in which increasingly less effective and efficient because everyone is so stressed."
"It makes me think of communism in Eastern europe."
"Especially in Czechoslovakia, described the persecuted and banned author, the lies, the corruption, the bureaucracy and the laughable ineffectiveness of the often wonderfully funny novels. In Prague grow then the good soldier Svejks days a particularly shrewd sense of humour."
"The gray and extremely mediocre the communists believed themselves to possess the key to the History of the world. It reminds in fact of today's marknadsprofeter who preach the only way forward for humanity – the pursuit of profit."
"It must have been hard for the communists to become utskrattade."
"Postsäcken Falun gong contained something more than 145 votes. The ran the story of our lives."
"We live in a ridiculous time."
"We need to learn to laugh at it."
