the tall grass gets mowed down, but the squeaky wheel gets the grease


There is an East Asian proverb to the effect, "The tall grass gets mowed down," but this is America, and we have our own proverb, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." Sometimes we have to squeak really loud to be heard, and respected.

I don't like to complain, and until the last few years I never complained about anything, and look where that has gotten me? So now I complain, on my own behalf and for others, and for principles I believe in. Better late than never...

If you don't like it, you can complein too, it's a free country. If you picket my office I will come out and join you! It's the American way.
