SO yeah, I never thought of CEOs as anybody different than me.

same. my first job (age 13-18) was a custodian at my local church in NJ. It had a full time nursery school (non religious) and rented its rooms out to other groups (indian weddings and stuff), so I was there for hours after school daily. Didn’t pay much but as custodians are “keepers of the keys”, I was in contact with everybody.

one more stupid story: had a temp job at an oil refinery in NJ. At lunch, I went to the big cafeteria got a burger and fries and sat down at a table with a free space and chatting with the guys there.

I noticed fingers pointing all around the large room and people saying “can you believe it!?!?” “the nerve!”

Bunch of nice guys. Anyway, a guy pulled me aside later on and said, “Man you have balls – that was the executive’s table!”

I just shrugged my shoulders. I ate with other random people after that, but I did go back to the ‘exec table’ a couple more times, because now I knew I had an audience and didn’t care about the execs. I was a temp – what was it to me?
