“Lead, follow, or get out of the way” is the catchphrase for the main character in Idiocracy, who goes from “getting out of the way” to leading over the course of the movie.
If you’re not going to lead, are you the kind of person who makes sure and steps back to make it clear you weren’t part of the team when things fail? Then you’re not following either… you’re just making sure someone else is holding the bag.
There’s always crap. Grab a bag or help someone hold theirs!
