You have my sincere sympathy. Restaurant company managers want to be " taken care" of in the same manner as technology company managers were taken care of a few years ago. In other words, they want to be paid a few billion dollars with no risk to their own finances and with no regards to their performance. Actually, it is almost all corporate managers. I think there is something in the Evian water that they drink. Now you know why people are departing the stock market and investing in their own homes. There is less liklihood that the manager of your own home will steal from you!
I have a friend who's wife recently filed for divorce. She got to keep the kids, the dogs and the house. So much for the boss not kicking you out of your own house.
Here, in America, CEO's are the equivalent to royalty and the biggest cheese of them all, GW Bush, is the ultimate usurper of authority. His stance on Iraq, handed down ex patris, a veritable family vendetta, looks likely to flout World opinion. At least the British public are planning a mass protest. Americans are patsies to authority.
