This is a question Greed

Buzzkillington says: "I once worked for Pizza Hut... Whats the the worst thing you've ever done for money?" And while we're here, tell us about greedy people you know. Money or pie, it doesn't matter.

Looking after Number One
I've worked with some very Machiavellian people in my time, but my old boss took the biscuit.

At one point, when I'd got involved in a discussion about pay and promotion, he tried to test my morals to see what I'd do for money.

Basically, I asked for a payrise, and he said that the only way I could have a payrise was if I agreed to block the payrise of the guy who worked for me, who happened to be a really good mate, as he couldn't possibly afford to give us both a raise. Evil Boss was visibly enjoying making me mull over such a ruthless course of action. After giving it some thought, and him giving me plenty of encouragement to 'Look after Number One'. I finally agreed to it, and we shook hands on my payrise.

Do I feel guilty?

Not at all. What Evil Boss didn't realise was that my friend was about to hand his notice in, anyway. He'd been offered a job that day. I knew this because I'd helped him find the job, with a mate of mine at another company, and I was getting half of the 1,000 Finders Fee as a result.
