If you aren’t familiar with the story of the lady or the tiger, here’s the brief version. (The full short story is here)
The short story takes place in a land ruled by a semi-barbaric king. One of the king’s innovations is the use of a public trial by ordeal. Anyone accused of a crime is put into an arena with two doors. Behind one door is a lady that the king has deemed a good match for the accused; behind the other is a fierce, hungry tiger. If the accused chooses the door with the lady behind it, he is innocent and must immediately marry her. If he chooses the door with the tiger behind it, he is guilty and immediately devoured.
Now, the narrator of the story never tells you what happens. He creates an air of emotions and states of mind and ultimately the story leaves you with an uncertainty you create in your mind and ends with the line: "And so I leave it with all of you: Which came out of the opened door – the lady, or the tiger?"
For most of us, uncertainty is uncomfortable. It’s not an enjoyable way to run your life – or a warehouse. Staffing dozens to hundreds of temps to get your work done is the same dilemma as the lady or tiger. Which will come through the door the day after you order 50 temps? You don’t know what’s going to get done. How much will get shipped. How much it will cost you. (Or if the costs will eat you alive.)
