Why bother...

I am trying, really trying, to be well behaved at work. We're having one of those back-patting or possibly -slapping sessions where we all exhort each other to work harder and publish more and apply for more grants. I am ranked 2nd in my department for money applied for in the last couple of years (didn't get any of it, but that's another story) and have filled my paper allocation too. I am trying to get funding and approval for a very mini initiative that could potentially be a nice little route to publication for at least two very senior and grumpy colleagues who haven't published or applied for anything in the last two years. Guess which ones have just been moaning about how it'll never work and be too much work for them.
