    That boxed in feeling you have, uncomfortable isn't it?

    I am not worried what Yppej thinks. haha
    When I grow tired of debating with her, I will just stop. It is merely for my own amusement that I do it.

    You are so superior you can even psychoanalyze people you have never met. Has anyone nominated you for a Nobel Prize yet?

    Yup, I am hitting home. Huh?

    Here is what I would prefer Yppej. I would prefer we stop arguing about this. I sincerely wish the best for you. I want you to enjoy your life, be happy, let go of bitterness and resentment.

    At my work, certain people are above the law. They can come and go as they please. They can work four 8 hour shifts when the rest of us work five 8 hour shifts. They can decline certain types of work. They can ignore directives that the rest of us must honor.

    But good on them. I wish I had that autonomy and agency. I am not one of the more privileged of my colleagues. I am happy for them though.

    I used to resent them and wish they would get punished and hope the bosses would crack down on them. But just because I don't have their privileges does not mean that I want theirs to be taken away anymore.

    I would rather some of us have privileges than none of us.

    Make sense?

    So don't begrudge me what good fortune I have had. Be certain, I have had plenty of bad fortune too. And I will definitely have more in due time.

    In the scenario you describe, if the elite group isnt putting in their time, someone else is picking up “their” work.
    Unless they are super workers, but You are not describing them as such.

    Or maybe your organization simply has too many employees. And who really cares about that, it is just a problem of the taxpayers space and who cares about them.

    Why care about elites who take advantage of others? Maybe someday you will get to be like them. Better that the top 1% have privileges than that no one have those privileges.

    You are making a false equivalency.

    UL doesn’t own a house but you do which is great. It’s all about choices. I would hope that those of us who are not murderers, pedaphiles, etc are better than those that are. I think that is what UL was saying. Not that he is better than everyone. Besides my dogs are better people than all of us
