I never thought I’d write a blog about a comment. Oh well. There’s a first time for everything I guess.
First, you’ll have to read the short, little story at ABC News.
Wall Street Pay Hits Record High -- What's Your Reaction?
”A year after President Obama's pay czar was charged with reviewing executive compensation, Wall Street workers have enjoyed record-high pay days this year, reports the Wall Street Journal.”
Then you have to click on the comments section. Look for the one written by Arturdingus that starts with “Hmm, what's that scratchy sound?”. I laughed so loud my wife heard me in the next room.
What can I say? Controllers have a dark sense of humor. I’m sure it’s just some kind of coping mechanism -- being able to make a joke about a gut-wrenching event. You probably saw the other comment about a Wall Street job being a stressful job. Where’s my six-figure bonus? I bet firemen, policemen and soldiers would like to jump on that band wagon too.
Oh, that’s right. We just try to keep people safe. The really important jobs are where you can make yourself obscenely rich while blowing up the world’s economy. What was I thinking? I must have lost my head.
