Work Principle

Beware of group-think: The fact that no one seems concerned doesn't mean nothing is wrong.

If you see something that seems unacceptable to you, don't assume that the fact that others also know about it and aren't screaming means it's not a problem. This is an easy trap to fall into--and a deadly one. Whenever you see badness, point it out to the Responsible Party and hold them accountable for doing something about it. Never stop saying, "This meal stinks!"
