“Give a man a job, you have an employee. Teach him how to shift blame, you have a manager”

A popular proverb is:

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”

A joke variation was posted on Twitter by Billy Dyer on January 11, 2012:

“Give a man a job, you have an employee. Teach him how to shift blame, you and have a manager.”
