The young people nowadays think that the money is all and when they grow up, they find that out for certain

6 a.m.: a wake -up call, a shower, a coffee, stiff collar, a suit, a briefcase and off to work for eight, maybe ten hours . Then a fake smile, constantly sitting in front of the computer with a short break for a stressful business lunch . And then again: thousands of rows of numbers, which are to be rebuilt into a...
