You may never have heard of Bill Malloy.
The Bill Malloys of this world are a curious breed. They are the self-appointed lifeguards for the rest of us. Smug, but I’ll be damned because they’re always right.
It’s for our own good. How do I know this? They keep reminding me.
And they always gave you your first job. You always owe them. Because they always did and you always do.
When the fertilizer hits the fan, just hope they’re on your side. Usually, it’s a dollar short and a prison sentence too late, but, hey, I guess justice is always in fashion.
Keep one of these guys at the payroll. Preferably before you get sent to your three squares and a roof.
