My Secret Chider

Found the following lying on my desk...not sure who passed it on to me...or what they were trying to tell me. So, not knowing what to do with it, "my job" is to pass it on to ANYBODY else...and perhaps suggest the JOB is curriculum change.

ANYBODY'S JOB
THIS IS THE STORY ABOUT FOUR PEOPLE: EVERYBODY, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY AND NOBODY.

THERE WAS AN IMPORTANT JOB TO BE DONE AND EVERYBODY WAS ASKED TO DO IT. EVERYBODY WAS SURE SOMEBODY WOULD DO IT. ANYBODY COULD HAVE DONE IT. BUT NOBODY DID IT.

SOMEBODY GOT ANGRY ABOUT THAT BECAUSE IT WAS EVERYBODY'S JOB.

EVERYBODY THOUGHT ANYBODY WOULD DO IT, BUT NOBODY REALIZED THAT EVERYBODY WOULDN'T DO IT.

IT ENDED UP THAT EVERYBODY BLAMED SOMEBODY WHEN ACTUALLY NOBODY ASKED ANYBODY TO DO IT.
