I have come to loathe some of the attorneys and co-workers at my job. They haven’t changed. I have. Either my tolerance level has lowered or it’s because they have become completely unhinged since the election and are not careful with what they say. I come from a working class family and it is unnerving to hear how much my Harvard and Yale bosses despise normal people. Whenever they have to go on trial outside of the East or West Coasts they moan and groan as if they are going to Calcutta. I over heard two attorneys talking about how they ventured beyond Whole Foods, Trader Joes and their favorite farmer’s market —gasp— went to a regular grocery store as if they went on safari. I think if they went to Walmart or Sav-a-Lot they’d have a stroke. It’s like the Floating World of Edo era Japan. The inhabitants have their drivers, their cheap illegal nannies, gardeners and to Hell with everybody else. I guess I need to start looking for another job.
We have a new blog in the blog role, Dymphna’s Road. I always appreciate writing that packs a lot of meaning into a few words, and the above quote is a sample of what Dymphna at her blog can do. Go here to have a look at the blog and I think you will put it on your regular blog reading list as I have have.
