I once sarcastically coined the phrase "We're a government agency. Please leave your common sense at the front desk"
It became a rather big hit among my colleagues and is still being quoted, after 20 years. It even spread to other agencies and ministeries LOL.
At my old job, a few of us repeated the phrase, "No motivation, no pride."
Yet our productivity increased over the years. Pride in our work was our motivation. We just had lousy morale. Really lousy morale.
