We're basically en route to war with them, but they're so essential to our everyday lives we can do nothing about it.

We can't live without little plastic cars.

A person (or entity) that will utilize you (your skill sets and possibly networked financial structure, too). This person may or may not be a sociopath (i.e.: may think that they really are the greatest, and thus will not recognize that they are in the wrong and not treating you the way you deserve to be treated). This person may also have extreme jealousy- wanting what you have, or trying to replicate what you are- in their mirrored image. This person may have very low self-esteem (thus they are consistently badmouthing or excluding others- in fear of their own social clout being shaken, and their own reputation being shifted). This person will make money off of you- through your network. This person will demoralize you- to make themselves feel better. This person will critique your decisions and lifestyle- to reaffirm that their existence is status quo. This person will ask you to stop speaking with other people, in fear that they will be found out. This person will tell you not to work with other people- because they have screwed up, and they do not want the truth to be known. This person is doing whatever it takes to get ahead in their own world.
