Song Inspiration: “Wasted Time” by Skid Row, 1991
Waste. We all know what that is. Normally, when we encounter a situation where waste has occurred, we get annoyed and think, “well, that was a waste”. Maybe the leftovers were never eaten, or maybe we spent $20 on lotto tickets without winning anything. These are typical examples of waste that immediately come to mind. However, warehouse waste comes in many shapes and sizes. It is a destructive little monster that hides in plain sight and surreptitiously rears its ugly head in the company’s bottom line. You and I together in our lives / Sacred ties would never fray / Then why can’t I let myself tell lies / And watch you die every day Waste is truly all around us, but we are so accustomed to it that we simply do not see it for what it is. So how do we see past the veil?
