As a former science student, my life was ruled by lab protocols, designed to keep us safe and stop us from inadvertently causing chaos. I though I’d seen the last of them once I’d graduated. But no, my working life is governed by them. Sometimes I long to ignore them, but the true scientist within won’t let me.
In reality, my mind first went to Tom Cruise when I read the word for today… Ghost Protocol! I’m a secret (not so secret) Cruise fan, and have been since the days of Top Gun. (Starts humming… Kenny Loggins Danger Zone) and now you have it stuck in your head too! Sorry (not sorry)!
Then my warped mind wandered off quotes I remembered…
Protocol is etiquette with a government expense account.Judith S. Martin
Given the state of affairs here in the UK… Protocol needs to have its expense account suspended, banished to the naughty step, and not allowed any more parties until it can prove it can behave itself with a modicum of decorum!
(Steps off soap box!)
