Remember our old friend Dick Fuld, ex CEO of Lehman Brothers? The one who got his snoot punched by an irate ex employee?
Well, here’s a picture of another disgruntled employee taking out his frustrations on his boss! Continue reading
Just imagine, having stood for ages on a freezing platform, on a dark winter’s morning, and the train eventually pulls in.
