After watching succession it lowkey felt like it was written about the Ford family. Around the time I was watching the show I met bill ford at some event I help organize at the train station being rebuilt. Thought I was on the come up. Couple months later I was laid-off/fired ahah. Wasn’t even a mid manager was just an entry level employee lololol.

We are all in succession lol, just not as main characters but as the little guys the main characters low key consider subhuman.

Well that’s one way to look at the world. My outlook on life isn’t as far in the “nothing matters” side of the spectrum as your message is portraying… I believe that everyone’s life has a “character arc”. Highs and lows. “No one cares about you.” is a sentence that is especially potent… like um,,, that ain’t true. And hard work has gotten me places. Some luck too ofc…

Who’s seen “industry”?? That show gave me so much anxiety I had to actually stop watching it. All the characters were SOoooooOOOO chaotic but I also understood their decisions. I’ll probably go back and watch it again later though. The drama is too addicting 🤷‍♂️

Right! It feels like the same creator of euphoria made industry. Just testing the limits of “how far can we go here” and “how much are we gonna show”

I've been on off sites that made me feel a bit like Succession (not at McKinsey).

Grind for that partner level at your fancy schmancy firm to get back to that yacht life? 😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤
