In Greece usually the public servants are lazy while all the rest of us work hard...trying to laze a bit...

I think Rommel used to say something to the effect that in his army he'd prefer to have smart but lazy people because they will figure a way to do things faster. Maybe I'm mistaking that for someone else.
The word we use for dembel is pertac while the verb for it is pertoj.
I agree with Ngadho... this is not the type of job market u should be making such jokes in. You want to promote nothing more than good old Protestant work ethic... otherwise you will be handed the papers very quickly when the going gets tough at your job.

I agree with Ngadho too. A little essay for Teuta, so she can feel better about her laziness:
In business these days we are all encouraged to work smarter not harder. This ignores the fact that there is a hard core of people who don't work smart or hard, in fact they hardly work at all. They are the 'motivationally challenged', traditionally known as lazy sods, and every office has at least one of them.
Strangely, lazy sods are always the busiest people in the office. Whenever you ask them to do anything there is no way they can help because they are far, far too busy. If you ever get irritated and ask them exactly what it is that they're so busy doing, they will have a long list of things that sound devilishly important. The truth is, if you'd asked them the same question a year previously, the list of things would have been exactly the same.
Lazy people actually lead very full lives because they take an arse-achingly long time to do simple things like photocopying. In order to fill their days they use a special technique the exact opposite of prioritising by which they unerringly select the most trivially unimportant aspect of a job and devote their entire energy, if not their whole working life, to it. For example they will spend two days looking for a first class stamp to make sure your post gets delivered as soon as possible.
The only time lazy people show any signs of activity are in meetings held to discuss more efficient working. Suddenly, they're bursting with all manner of schemes and innovations all of which sadly they are far too busy to implement. However, they're happy to have as many meetings as you like, because to them meetings are just like being down the pub - a nice relaxing chat until it's time to go home.
If you have to work with a lazy person you have two options: you can either ask them to do a job, remind them, re-remind them, cajole them, plead with them, threaten them, get eaten up with stress, have a nervous breakdown, see your marriage break up, drift into alcoholism and drug abuse and finally end up down and out in Swindon. Or you can do the job yourself.
You would have thought that lazy people would form an inert mass at the bottom of an organisation. On the contrary they are found at all levels in business, right up to Chairman. The reason for this is simple: when something goes wrong in business it's generally because someone somewhere has tried to do something. Obviously, if you don't do anything, you can't be blamed when it goes wrong. People who sit all day like a lemon busily straightening paperclips are therefore the only people with a 100% record of success, and with that sort of record the world is your oyster.

pirro2017: Dear Administrator, do not forget that today`s Greek population are 30% arvanites -or orthodox albanians, aprox-20& slavs, and 20% vlahs, other part of population are from egyptus and Anatolia. So Haplogroups are close to these ethnys.
