The JC’s eighth law of worker entropy states that the longer a compulsory activity, mandated by middle management, takes, the more tedious it will be. Tedium will increase asymptotically towards the point of deal fatigue, but will never quite reach it, because you are not allowed to have deal fatigue on tasks assigned by middle management. Thus, netting opinion compliance programmes, computer-based training, and performance appraisals. The eighth law is a corollary of the fifth law of worker entropy, and as such does not apply to transactions, to which deal fatigue, mercifully, does apply.
