The worst addiction for a human being is a monthly salary.
Word. Couldn’t agree more.
Very interesting listening to that man describe his time working for Google. This is what I keep saying: we humans are being treated more and more like pets these days. Now corporations have figured out how to groom us in this way so as to create dependency. All ye men who take issue with (some) women being treated as coddled princesses, notice that males are now receiving a similar treatment too through select corporate entities. And I don’t believe this new trend will fizzle out anytime soon, at least not for those in techie and other specialty fields deemed to be of high economic/commercial importance currently.
Incomes are a motherfucker though. Safety net, yes. Glad to avoid that, stressful as it can be at times to remain self-employed.
