    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Standard Paradigm
    Content:

    Aesthetics over Functionality

    [Includes three frame comic strip of worker and Supervisor discussing ergonomics]

    Worker: "May I have an ergonomic evaluation of my chair and keyboard?"
    Supervisor: "Asok, work is supposed to hurt. That's how you know you're doing it right."
    Worker: "I can't feel my hands!" "My whole body hurts"
    Supervisor: "My whole body is numb!"

    Speaker Notes:

    We had to mount a major effort to convince management that there was more to a proper work station than esthetics and we had to convince GSA that low bidder was not going to work in this situation.
