I think it might be interesting taking a micro-drill through your urinary meatus whilst simultaneously taking a sledge-hammer to your foot knuckles. I expect you would be singing Kumbaya through the process whilst feeling real good.How you choose to respond to something and how you wish to feel in a situation is only controlled by one person - you.
One of my ex-directs did that. I don't remember what he exactly said - something about sanitation issues with urinals. To be honest, most public toilets are in terrible condition so I can't imagine how it's actually more sanitary.What do you make of a guy who always goes into a cubicle and locks the door behind himself to piss? Even when all urinals are free. Anything other than super insecurity?
just send a cardSocial etiquette advice.
I trade Christmas cards every year with this one guy. I knew him a bit in high school and then he attended the same university as me. He dropped out and became some religious/social worker type person and honestly I haven't seen him in probably ten years now. He just had a baby. He married a woman that came with another kid. Instead of a Christmas card he gave me a card with some photographs of the baby, couple and the bastard. Is it expected I send him a token gift? Baby rattle?
Really depends upon who you are - what your personality is like....is someone truly happy when he has all that? Would I be happy or simply wanting to crave for more?
From what I read in that article he still isn't happy else why take on the largest gold mining firm in the world and try to turn it around when you were already top 5 in Goldman Sachs. I think materially I have everything I need. I can indulge without counting pennies when I want but I'm not always into excessive indulgence. It's just interesting people have this artificial cocoon (I don't fly commercial planes). How does that person relate to the common man on the street?Really depends upon who you are - what your personality is like.
I know a few wealthy people ($10 million plus) who have a few nice houses in various spots around the world but who don't crave anything. They don't need more money, they don't need flash cars, they don't need name-brand clothes, fancy watches or first-class travel. One of them drives around in a second-hand Honda Prelude when he's in Australia and another has a Renault family van.
On the other hand, I've known wealthy people who never seem content. They need to acquire more, they need to show off their wealth by buying Ferrari and Mercedes cars, by showing off their possessions and lifestyles on Instagram and they seem to judge themselves by other people's perceptions of them and their wealth.
So it really just depends upon which camp you fall into - or whether you fall in-between the two to some extent.
I'm counting how much money to save for alcohol. The basement flat is more money but it's nowhere near any bars and I have to pick up the keys in person (which means not showing up completely sloshed).I’ve spent a few years in barracks with shared bathrooms and it’s bearable, but surely you can afford to get your own? Is the price difference really that extreme??

this can be tricky, thoughI'm counting how much money to save for alcohol. The basement flat is more money but it's nowhere near any bars and I have to pick up the keys in person (which means not showing up completely sloshed).
Cheers. I'll remember to de-select you for the 360 degree reviews.Well if you only became insurance man of the year, they might buy you a Segway or something like that to help you push that paper around faster and then you might be able to have a life!
If you constantly work more than a couple of hours each day (actual, meaningful, productive work) and do weekend work, take no vacation etc. you are most likely not very good at what you are doing. You claim to be some type of low/mid-level manager ffs. How about you start with taking control and first of all manage your workday. If find it hard to imagine that you are capable of leading other people if you can't even keep your own shit together.
