For years they would go out drinking with colleagues and clients, returning home drunk at 2 am before rising at dawn to head back to the office. Sometimes they just sleep in the streets because they cannot afford a taxi as they are only the sheep of the huge corporates. They work daily 14 hours or even more.

They are walking in the streets like ghosts self centered deeply focused at their own career that isn't very bright but their visions are different. "Only 5 more years and I will get to the higher position in this neverending pyramid".

The guy looks like he's either checking out the photographer or trying to contemplate how to murder him without getting caught.

"... and then the boss walked in and saw me sleeping for the 3rd time this month, and he went off like a Dragon on New Years nightnwith about 50 fire crackers up its backside. He was calling me names of things I've never even heard of before. You shudda been there. It was over the top classic Godzilla vs. the Lilliputians, but I'm still working there. Can you believe it???
