Richer than sensible

If I were very rich, I’d hire a “no person.” That is, I’d hire someone specifically so that they’d find all the ways I am wrong about something.

That would be their specific job, to always be my devil’s advocate so I don’t lose perspective and become a complete assclown as most rich people seem to become.

Most of the rich seem to want to surround themselves with those who act as useless parrots of their views and desires. I want someone who will tell me, “That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard and you should be ashamed for breathing.”

Someone who tells me I am right all the time is completely useless. Hell, I think I am right most of the time. I don’t need anyone to tell me that.

Advertising for that job would be rather interesting. Interviewing would be as well.

I’d hire the first person who told me I was conducting the interview like a damn idiot.
