I've worked with and for quite a few. And the higher up the ladder most people get, the less empathy they exhibit. Corporate life is often hell...

Try working in the fashion industry! I've not known any psychopaths but seem to have come across lots of sadistic bitches!

Is that like the question: "How do you keep a ****** in suspense?" "I'll tell you tomorrow."

Nothing much actually. I have helped set my employer up so that they stand to lose several million USD and only I can really help them out of it. I resigned on Sunday and now await their response.

I wouldn't normally do such a thing, but they haven't exactly been very nice.
