Too Much Information

I am glad I don't work for the Civil Service in India.
Women civil servants in India have expressed shock at new appraisal rules which require them to reveal details of their menstrual cycles.

I think "expressed shock" is putting it mildly.

And you thought navigating US employment rules was tough!

ha ha. the latest news is that this has been struck down by the government itself, which realised the folly of the whole thing, and the outrage it would generate.

But the question is, why didn't they realize that before they announced.

Everytime I hear of a business or government doing something really stuipd, I say to myself, "but a committee had to approve this. Didn't anyone realize how stupid this was?"
