Amusing new phrase

The other day a colleague told me about a phrase that goes something like: "pissing on your feet when you are in the snow and ice" The general meaning is that it may be a short-term solution to making your feet warmer, but in the long-run, it makes it worse (much less the fact you just peed on yourself). The ramifications of this phrase are broad, and how many business decisions are made thinking only about the short-term profit? (This is not one company specifically, or at least I choose not to comment on my current company, but it is worldwide). I guess humans and their companies like to piss on their feet too often ;)
