Quick Bad Management Analogy

I was talking with the other developer today and the subject of our lack of management came up, as it always does. Our suspicion is that somewhere in the project transition there may have been a decision that we were perfectly capable of doing our jobs with very little interaction from them. While this is true, they seem to have taken the old adage that the manager that manages least manages best to an unhealthy extreme. The analogy I came up with is it's like someone driving one of those big 1970's custom vans discovered that if they briefly took their hands off the steering wheel the van seemed to drive itself. So they decided to put a cinderblock on the gas and go to the back to make themselves a drink.
