Bullshit Job Notes – Aceso Under Glass

Scott talks about a bit of medical theater, in which companies demand doctors notes to allow people to bring in their own chairs to work; he is often the person in best position to provide that note, despite being a psychiatrist who usually works remotely. He’s knows little about back pain and nothing about chairs.
