A person who is so focused on money, status and career advancement that they are blind to most of what makes life enjoyable and meaningful. Things, people and experiences that do not directly further their career goals mean nothing to them. How they dress, what they drive, where they vacation, what they talk about is all focused on presenting a competent, successful image of themselves to people in a position to hire them, promote them or give them business. Everything else in life is worthless to them (until, of course, they achieve that success and realize it didn't come close to filling the hole in them they thought it would). Then they reverse tactics and become all new-agey in an attempt to reverse decades of single-minded careerism. Children of these people roll their eyes a lot and think their parents are assholes.
I just wasted two hours of my life having dinner with my client. They're such a career nazi, we had to talk business all night long. I need a drink
Introducing beer to a get together--like a baby shower, graduation party or sunday brunch--where nobody else is drinking and alcohol would be considered completely inappropriate. A beer strike will usually bring intense scorn from those around you' including your girlfriend, parents, inlaws, etc., but is the only thing that will get you through the rest of the event alive.
Gentlemen, the conversation at this baby shower has grown intolerable. I believe it’s time to "call in a beer strike on our position"
A person who has given up a real life full of risk, reward and personal growth for the comfort of 500 channels, a super-sized diet and a beige, velour recliner. They sadly believe that comfort, ease and the avoidance of pain are the most important things in life.
Nah, they're not interested in learning anything. They're just a bunch of houseplants and comfort zombies.
People who are a waste of space on this planet. They walk through life uninterested and uninteresting. They're so out of touch with their own wants and needs that they are unable to form their own opinion about anything. They are therefore highly susceptible to fads, advertising and gimmicks. They go to the same vacation spots, restaurants and movies over and over again since they're deathly afraid of any new experience.
Nah, they're not interested in learning anything new. They're just a bunch of houseplants and comfort zombies.
