Some people who are ambitious and want your job will never say they are ambitious and want your job. They will say your hair looks nice today.
And then when she has become your boss and you ask for a raise, she says your hair looks nice today but she liked it a little better when it was longer, didn’t you, and she’d love to give you a raise and you certainly deserve it but … those darned penny pinchers in accounting! Maybe you’d be happier somewhere where you can get paid what you’re worth … and thanks for coming in, I’m glad we could have this little chat!
Oh how in the blink of an eye our fortunes can change!
