Being at the top has it's benefits but..

It is lonely at the top..

You spend 8 hours a day, five days a week, year after year with this great group of individuals –your employees.
They share your dreams, they know your frustrations..
one day you notice, you've succeeded, they've become a team, a pact, one..
and you, you are the leader of it.. it, the team you've made from the individuals you spend 8 hours with, year after year..

it is lonely at the top.

your friends, whom you spend your days off with. go home after jobs and sleep, you don't.. you worry about debts to be paid.. targets to be met.. people households depending on you to feed, they sleep, your friends.

they bitch with a lightness you envy about their uptight managers.. the absurdity of paperwork.. and how they should be paid more especially that the organisation they work for made 3millions this year.. irony is; you know that the yearly payroll alone of an organisation this size could be in the range of two million.. then there's advertising.. the daily operations cost.. probably their organisation makes null for now, didn't even reach the break-even.. but you don't say a thing.. you smile in agreement.. and it is lonely at the top.

    I hate Arab's, Muslims, whatever they are, and I hate the fact that the men regularly beat up their wives, and the wives will say that getting beat is a common occurence. I don't know why they are allowed in our country; aren't they the ones who killed the twin towers?
