Wistful surgeon, listless pilot

Monitor subtle drift in behaviour
  [vote for,

I prefer my surgeon to be focused, and my flight's captain to exude a captain-ly resolve.

Welcome to Wistful Surgeon, Listless Pilot. A business that assigns a small but vigilance-based hobby to key personnel.

The service includes meticulous measurement of the assigned hobby, in an effort to determine any early indications of vigilance drift.

When the chief surgeon of your local hospital has a slightly droopy bonsai plant, HR is tactfully and discretely informed.

If that tropical fish is swimming in a slightly substandard PH environment, we suggest a small leave of absence.

The business is very financially sound, mainly because if you are slightly late paying your invoice we will contact HR and tell them you're too listless and wistful to keep your job.

       Oh, damn... just realised I could have called the business Sturgeons For Surgeons, Violets For Pilots.

       + It could be a good idea for people to notice these other behaviors etc. that might lead to something else. Bun for your forethought.

       I imagine the surgeon slicing out two or three arteries to starve the heart of blood thinking how beautifully twisted and shrunken it will look in a years time. And the pilot browsing fish tank accessories on Amazon while the autopilot is landing the aeroplane...

       I don't know about you, but the main thing I want my brain surgeon worrying about when I'm on the table is whether he is in compliance with his assigned hobby maintenance and will therefore get to keep his job.
