I'm not even in lower management.

I've been stuck as a Sr. for like 10 years.

I have never aspired to be a manager.

Middle managers are always at risk when the business decides to cut costs.

From my own experience with managers, they do not understand the level of detail to work things out. They are at the mercy of knowledgeable and experienced employees who have no loyalty.
I don't lose any sleep when the team can't meet the deadline.

I'm just happy to add tools to my belt and learn and grow as an analyst.

At my type of job manager is just a title above Sr. You might not actually manage anyone.

It's taken me like 40 years to realize that much of what we're taught culturally for the first 25 years of our lives are total lies. Parents, school, etc do not prepare people for the world or adulthood.

I am so relieved at never having to bring someone into this world who might experience the stuff we have.

Well at my place, recently, any manager that managed less than 3 had the manager title stripped away from them, just like that. The manager who managed just me was demoted to analyst. That means he does not get the recognition of being a manager when he applies for a managerial position. I don't know what is bs, him managing me and me doing all the work being called a manager (previously, he had managed just one person also) or having the manager word stripped from your title, just like that.


I've heard you mention about being raised on lies many times here ...

I don't mean maliciously. It's just people repeating what society taught them, and so on.

Like honestly in my life my dad has never taught me a single thing about women other than he should have never married my mom. Not. One. Thing.

I don't hate people I just hate dealing with their shit. I want to deal with my own shit.

one of the reasons technical people become manager is to block other people from becoming manager (by taking the role) and in many cases, that's to save the team. my code mentor did it recently and i couldn't help but chuckle lol.

Also I'm resentful of the money my dad spent on my private Jewish education. All of those hours learning Hebrew, Yiddish, bullshit "Jewish History", Hebrew bible study, what a fucking waste of time. I'm an atheist, so...great job? He's not even religious he did it because that's what everybody did.

That's when you become an adult, that you take matters into your own hands. Your parents did the best with what they knew at the moment to raise You. You can't expect them to be your mentor. Find your own mentor. As an adult, you know life is kinda like a game. You're learning now that if you say what people what they want to hear, you don't create waves. If you're too honest with expressing unpopular views, then there is the work in having to deal with people who can't understand where you're coming from.

You know I would love to find someone like me that has it all figured out but I've never met one.

He's asking if you're his long-lost brother, because he was (probably) raised in a manner extremely similar to yours in re: woman-knowledge or lack there of.
