Belittling Rules

Years ago, Actor Businessman (AB) was often ignored, as he was new and struggling to prove he deserves space in the entertainment industry. Despite being talented, AB’s career never reached high enough to leave a strong impression. Thus, he moved to another industry, but still maintained close friends in showbiz. After years of engaging in his new line of work, AB became a reputable businessman.

One day, AB was invited to the home of his Close Friend (CF). CF used to be active in the industry, but has opted to take things slowly and focus on her private life. This time, AB was no longer the struggling, ignored actor, as he has risen to the ranks of millionaires. CF, meanwhile, valued AB, as he could bring her contacts among the influential affluent. Thus, she made it a point to include AB in her activities.

This time, CF wanted to show off her expensive kitchenware and thus, AB and her other friends were treated to a gastronomic experience. As the circle comprised mostly socialites, food was hardly consumed, as most were pretending to be on diet. AB then called and invited CF’s helpers to partake of the leftovers. Immediately, CF butted in and said that her helpers have their own food, which is separated from theirs.

AB did not bother counter what CF said, as he was a guest in her home. Then, CF brought out the plasticware for the left overs. Immediately, CF’s Non-showbiz Defender (ND) started scooping up and putting the leftovers into the containers. AB joked that ND’s actions matched a popular phrase of a noted song of a music icon. They laughed, but AB had to ask why ND was not leaving anything for the helpers of AB.

AB was too puzzled at the attitude of CF toward her helpers. ND replied that CF preferred her friends to take home leftovers, as she did not want her helpers to get used to high-end food that is meant only for her circle of society friends. Besides, CF believed that her helpers would not appreciate the gourmet food and would prefer food with MSG. AB, who came from humble beginnings, was shocked at the response, as he observed the helpers were hardworking and attentive to the calls of CF. Then, he found out that CF had a high turnover of helpers, as many could not stand her after all.

One day, AB was again invited by CF. This time, AB was prepared and had gifts for the helpers. He gave the helpers healthcare products for them to take care of their skin and feel good about themselves. Of course, AB did not tell CF about his gifts, as she might take such gesture a personal attack on her home management skills.

‘Stay hungry, stay young, stay foolish, stay curious, and above all, stay humble because just when you think you got all the answers, is the moment when some bitter twist of fate in the universe will remind you that you very much don't.’ ― Tom Hiddleston
