Superwoman and Wonder Woman work at my office

There are only 10 of us at our office, but apparently all we really need are two people. These two ladies – your typical, power-hungry, twice-divorced, overachieving, no-life-having, always-dieting, hyper corporate personalities – take being a Mrs. Know-It-All to a whole new level. These ladies are Senior VP Executives, of course, and manage to get involved in EVERYTHING, from day-to-day press clippings and preproduction and traffic, to budget analysis, corporate strategy and – wait for it – creative.

The irony is that these are the very people who rant all day about the importance of teamwork, yet can’t help but take over every process and run things on their own. Their ego is so powerful that they can’t trust the work and commitment of their peers and feel that when things need to be done right, they have to do it themselves. By hogging all the space (and taking all the credit, of course), no one is given a chance to do their thing and shine.

I really don’t give a shit, but I do feel sorry for my colleagues. They’re a very talented bunch and I respect them all. It hurts me to see their frustration when having to deal with these power mongers.
