It’s not for you... Before more than 15 years ago, there used to be a very senior manager, he used to have power over almost all the departments across the institution, and his wishes were treated like commands. He had it all. His arrogance was beyond limits, he used to look down to people, as if they were nothing, especially those who didn’t work directly under his command, to the extent that he didn’t even bother look at them or answer their greetings.
