I was having lunch with my friend Jenny recently. She told me she just got a promotion at work, which I knew she had long desired. But Jenny didn't look too excited. When I congratulated her, she said, "Yeah, but it's a job nobody wants. I'll need to manage all these people who don't get along. And the deadlines are just insane!"
I tried to convince her that being promoted was actually wonderful. But she brushed it off, and asked how I was doing. I told her that a reputed magazine just accepted an article of mine.
