I was browsing a career-related internet forum a while back, and someone started a thread called "Which [degree type removed] program has the hottest girls". An MD commented on the thread saying "this is inappropriate" and the thread was removed shortly afterwards.
Obviously you have to carry yourself much differently in a corporate environment than you would with your closest friends. You have to smile cheesily, laugh at retarded jokes, be careful not to offend people, be politically correct, pretend like you give a shit, and never be anything more than mildly sarcastic. I have this theory that the longer one works in this environment, the more that he transforms into the archetypical humorless corporate drone with a commodity-like personality.
This actually kind of scares me. Is there any truth to this fear, or am I being irrational?
