As Ford suffers the sort of fallout one would expect from a nation full of potty-humor enthusiasts, Chrysler's VP of Communications Jason Vines has stated that his company does not intend to employ the Gilbreths' contribution to assembly-line efficiency while waiting for employees to answer nature's call. As he puts it, "We're not gonna use a stopwatch, turning a natural function into an Olympic sport. That… would just be… well… too anal." He does acknowledge that US car companies are relatively lenient in allowing employees to pursue "a more leisurely, quality rest room respite" which is one way to explain a 48-minute break in the reading room.
