DSK

I report to the sort of people who report to the sort of people who may occasionally report to the sort of people like DSK.

The life a European bureaucrat at my level is very nice. When I have meetings there, the meetings are generally scheduled to start at 9. This means that someone begins serving espresso or coffee at 9. Usually we’re underway by 9:30. Lunch usually lasts a couple hours and is always accompanied by good wine. Everyone stops working at 5.

If you live like this, even for a short time, it’s very hard not to start to feel entitled.

I suppose at the top, they work harder and they play harder.
