in my line of work there’s a strict hierarchy. I suppose it’s the same in every career but it’s especially strong in careers that aren’t ruled strictly by money. Sure money controls everything, but there are a few areas where money is secondary. Say for example athletics–no amount of money can make a slow runner win the race, it ultimately comes down to ability, talent, hard work and all the “noble” qualities we admire. my problem is that my line of work isn’t as clearcut as athletics; it’s still judged on a very subjective basis and that’s where $$ sticks its dirty fingers in. If you hadn’t guessed I don’t have $$ so I can’t break through the ceiling and that’s why I’m stuck in this shitswamp I refer to as a pond.
this is where little fish supposedly band together and break out. that’s how you get to the next bigger pond if you don’t have $$. Fair enough. but there’s a reason why they’re called little fish. its because they’re stuck in the little fish mentality, not strong enough to lead so they latch onto something bigger to lead them. the problem is they end up dragging down whatever they latch onto. And that’s why swamps remain swamps.
metaphor over. I’m sick of this shit.I’m sick of every “opportunity” being just another opportunist. Nobody in this shit town understands how symbiosis works, they’re too focused on saving their own sorry asses no matter whom they drag down. 1 lifeboat for the entire ship? Let’s all pile the fuck in!
I’m so fucking sick of humans with their swamp herd mentality. but I guess it’s my fault for coming to this swamp. (not that it was by choice). Funny when I was a little kid I wrote a short story based on the pied piper fable, only in my story it was about a piper who leads all the selfish opportunist gold diggers over a fucking cliff, and it ends with him being the last to jump. give that kid a gold star for prophecy
