During my life I watched someone near and dear to me climb the career ladder, being rewarded for his excellent work ethic and hard work with promotions and an increased salary. Along with that came more responsibility, longer hours, and tasks that weren't to his liking. This man who once enjoyed his job and his work became agitated, cranky, and hated going to work. He developed a lingering illness.
Some of us are quite happy where we are and have no desire to climb and claw our way to the top of the career ladder. Some of us prefer personal happiness over workplace achievements. A job isn't always a career, and a career isn't always your life, and if you are happy, why is that an issue?
There's the catch. The have nots never wanted to play the ladder game. They were happy where they were. They did not want to be promoted out of a job they loved and into something they didn't. Oh sure, some folks dabbled with the idea and got a few college credits here and there but their hearts weren't in it. The haves don't seem to understand that. They wanted it; they got it. Doesn't everybody?
Again... no. Someone has to peel the damn potatoes.
