“Taxing Encounter”

I knew of a woman, ambitious and factual.

“Tell me,” she said, “how do I acquire the most capital?”

“Ah,” said her friend. “Work for Juul! Gen Z makes the most lucrative customer pool.”

“No,” said another. “Go into finance. Sell mortgages to the masses, any credit rating will pass!”

A passerby interjected. “Here!” he shouted, “work for a non-profit — your morals will never be doubted”

The woman’s friends laughed, feeling invincible, “What a silly man” they said, “leading you towards a life without principal.”
