Working in the corporate world is not dissimilar to working as a Hollywood actor. Both forms of employment dictate that their protagonist act out a role they have no belief in. The script is dead, there is no higher purpose, and money is the only prize. I'm here, so I'm no better. Tom Cruise, minus the good looks, running around in a boring role, trying to convince the world of the company's worth.
And why the shirt and tie ordeal? Who are we trying to impress? I can't remember the last time that any of us met customers. Are we trying to impress each other? 'Look! Look at my tie!' is the silent scream from some of these corporate junkies. I say, if you want to wear a tie feel free, but don't impose your fraudster sentiments on the rest of us.
