Caste Systems

The side that summons versus the side that is summoned.

The side called by a title versus the side called by first name.

The side that does not carry material versus the side that totes briefcases and files.

The side that does not have to explain versus the side that does.

The side that orders the drafting of documents versus the one that does the drafting.

The side that does not need a nameplate versus the one that does.

The side with the nameplate on the desk versus the one with the name on the uniform.

The side with the wooden desk versus that with the metal desk.

The side with the private office versus the one with the cubicle.

The side that sits versus the side that stands.

The side that can speak softly versus the side that has to shout.
