The Love of Money

The company I work for shares an office building with several other businesses. There’s a common area with a refrigerator, microwave, sink and a large tables, chairs, and whiteboards. Though occasionally the room is used for meetings by some of the other businesses, I’ve rarely seen anyone else in the room – at least while I’m microwaving lunch. The room must be used somewhat because every week or two someone writes a question on the whiteboard closest to the door. Every afternoon there are new answers to the question.

On Monday someone wrote the following question: What would you do if money weren’t an issue? Here’s this week’s responses:

• Become a teacher • Live in Paris • Eat beef and chicken • Coach soccer • Run for president • Go to school forever • Make myself look like Rambo • Hire a hit man to whack my boss.
