This Is Not A
The sentiments are familiar enough, but I've seldom come across it so aptly expressed:
"Somebody once told me a story about a troop of monkeys. They were all climbing something and the alpha monkeys or management, were in front and the normal ones, worker monkeys if you like, were lower down. The alpha monkeys looked down and all they could see were a lot of smiling faces. The normal monkeys looked up and all they could see were a large number of arse-holes."
