I rejected people with two or three universities, from state colleges, not private, with master's degrees, with the Sorbone, Harvad, Osford, not trifles. There also came those with huge experience in the country and abroad, with kilometers of pages in their CVs. And they left as they came, because the clothes do not define the human, neither does the book. I make him, my muscle and I, as he wants. And you? You're dumb and arrogant. So you got the job. For now on you are the boss of the bosses as I just did not work in vain, bless your heart, what a smart boy you are.
