Alot of office jobs have the same toxic dynamics as middle/high school sociology.
As a kid, alot of childrens shows only shown office jobs as the default of adulthood amd that triggered some existential anxiety.
My prepubescent hunch about adult dynamics based on cartoonish portrayal of office jobs are somewhat validated years later.
At least with blue collar work, your work has practical effects on the real world.
You can survive on such work.
Office jobs are just pushing pencils amd throwing around papers to feel busy and having to dress formally all the time and dealing with unwanted romantic effects.
Yet our modern education system tells the youth that this is what they should aspire for.
