The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Fake It Till You Make It. Even If You’ll Still Be Faking It …

Sometimes life reminds you that it doesn’t matter how hard you work, how well you do, how many academic qualifications you gain, how much you try, it’s the people with connections, wealth or a loud-mouth who often get the accolades.

I can’t really complain given how much my gob has helped me over the years, but I recently saw the success of someone I vaguely know that is so outrageous, it makes Paris Hilton look like she has had it tough.

On one hand, I should applaud him because he got off his arse and did something that corporates like and want.

But on the other hand, I know it’s all down to his rich Dad … because having watched his acceptance speech of some major industry award, he continues to spout the same stunted, superficial, irrelevant, mental bollocks that he did when I worked with him 10,000 years ago.

Which leads to the moral of the story.

Life isn’t fair.

Which is why because of this, you may as well have a go chasing whatever job/company/position excites you, because someone is going to get there and there’s a very good chance it will be someone who doesn’t deserve to be in that seat either.

And I’m the living proof.

But my ex-colleague is the 100%, absolute definitive definition of it.

Do I know him? If I don’t, can you introduce me.

Comment by Bazza

Sort-of. You’ve met him and if I remember correctly, you referred to him as “the mosquito”.

Comment by Rob

That makes me vomit in my mouth.

Comment by Bazza

If life is unfair, there is no point in having a go. The deck is stacked.

Comment by John

if that was the case campbell would be sitting in a nottingham jail where he belongs instead of giving us daily fucking mental torture from his ivory fucking tower.

Comment by andy@cynic

He’s the outlier. My experience is different.

Comment by John

What if you’re the outlier John?

By the way, congratulations to George and Pete for joining Sesame Street.

I decided to change it for today only in honor of the name of googles new owners.

Comment by Bazza

And they say Silicon Valley is full of smart people. Lame.

Comment by DH

Oh dear. I also note neither George or Pete have said anything today. Maybe they’re being brainwashed. Again. Ha.

Comment by Rob

I’ve been too busy relearning my ABC’s to respond to the childish banter of Baz.

Comment by George

I tried. Didn’t work for me. I ended up working for you.

Comment by DH

And you got paid for not doing very much at all, so in some ways, you won.
