TOYS AND GAMES: From Monkeys in the Trees to Flea Baths

My friend Frank Agliano once compared the workplace to a tree full of monkeys when he told me, “If you’re at the top of the tree, you look down and all you see are smiling faces. If you’re at the bottom and you look up, all you see are assholes.”
