SENSUAL DAD KISS posted:

is this a theme in your life because it certainly is for your posting

this was a finance guy i sat next to in class. he often brought up how luxurious his uncles home and cars were, always following it up with his catch phrase “money all the way” which he repeated 2 or 3 times to make sure my silent, natural Botox Quick Release expression wasn’t because I didn’t hear him. i did hear him, and I heard him every time he told me his parents were all hedge fund manager and he was setting up bus own fund too.

always busy, busy, busy. i guess he was so busy and well organized that he changed his Facebook occupation to CEO of an investment company. still, he had to repeatedly remind me that he couldn’t yet solicit investment advice until legal things were in order. i never asked once, so clearly his preemptive disclaimers worked.

with busy class-filled days, and likely pressure from his family to succeed in his classes, he made up for his exhausting class schedule by sleeping in the classes themselves.

sadly the class room environment was a distracting place to try catch some shut eye. he’d lightly droop his head for 3-4 minutes before needed to turn to me to ask “was i sleeping”. it’s a human desire to get validation from their peers, and apparently so for ability to appear sleeping in class. seemingly unsatisfied with my answer that i didn’t know, he tilted his forward head and closed his eyes again. a minute and a half later, a jolt and “was i just sleeping”? “i’m sorry, i didn’t notice,” i’d say. i hoped if i kept it up all semester he’d don pyjamas and kept in a sleeping back then pop back up to ask “oops, was i just sleeping?” “hmm? not that i noticed”

i did most of our team project, and after polite reminders for weeks, texted him at 3AM on due date asking for his part of the assignment. his words? “i’m not like you. i’m a very important business person. I have meetings, not dumb kids stuff”. he handed in the work andrew minutes later but admitted it was simply done with an automatic feature in Excel and he had no idea what any of it meant.

is beat him on every single exam and assignment, and told the professor he contributed nothing to the project at all.

anyway thanks for reading, and “money all the way”

not when that 4 hour meeting is your entire work week and you get to boss people around during it and can buy into the illusion that you're actually doing something to deserve making more money in an hour than the average person makes in a year

but at that point why are you even still bothering to performatively "earn" money? your money makes its own money

you could boss around your household staff or a bunch of sex workers or idk build a star trek bridge and hire actors to be your crew [and maybe also have sex with them] but gently caress why would you go and do actual business stuff? brain worms

I guess if your whole identity is "I'm a magic business genius" and you have no other life you'll just keep doing it but drat, wealth is wasted on the wealthy

This is what it is, this is how the article about his sob story ends

But, he added, “if you have anyone who can do a better job, please let me know. They can have the job. Is there someone who can do the job better? They can have the reins right now.”

Musk even scolded a Tesla employee who missed an event to witness the birth of his child, Vance's book says.

Here's the email Musk reportedly sent to a Tesla employee who wasn't identified by name in the book:

That is no excuse. I am extremely disappointed. You need to figure out where your priorities are. We're changing the world and changing history, and you either commit or you don't.
