No Points

I keep having to remind myself that no points are awarded to the person with the best complaint. In a situation with frequent changes in norms and the high levels of unpredictability and resultant stress, a way to adapt is to articulate all the ways that’s hard. Describe the strain it puts on you, and draw others in, so that they corroborate your grievance. It almost feels productive.

But it’s not. It’s helpful, in a way and for a time. But it isn’t making anything better. No points are awarded for best complaint. In fact, no points are awarded at all. You have to score them yourself.
