Once a year I get together for a weekend with the other people I work with (on my level and above) for our annual retreat at a luxury hotel. We all hate each other but it is unsaid and we all smile and pretend that we are all collegial and friendly. Also unsaid is that our biggest competitors in our business are not at other businesses but within our own business as we would all steal each other's clients at the first opportunity. As soon as we get back to our offices on Monday it's back to the usual backstabbing, double dealing, etc. None of us are billionaires by any stretch but most everyone at our level is doing pretty well, relatively speaking.
It is a miserable life.
it's the same at all levels in every job. We re animals. Hapiness is fucking other people in the ass and it's automatical. You want to be happy, dominate. If you cant dominate, no hapiness for you. Who's happy? those at the top, and they re happy because there are a lot of unhappy people below them and they know it.
