law of infinite dumbasses
This refers to a work situation. This law states that if you fire the dumbass at work, either his replacement will be a dumbass, or another coworker will take on the role of the company dumbass. Thus, you can never have a dumbass-free work place.
Well, we canned Jim for screwing up all the time, and now Bill does nothing but fuck up. The law of infinite dumbasses never fails.
Why don’t you fire Jim, he’s a fuck up? Yeah, but I can deal with it, I’m afraid his replacement may be a bigger dumbass.
