  Well, in my culture, if you just do whatever you like when you are
  employed instead of doing specifically what you are told to do as part of
  your employment contract, you cease to be employed shortly thereafter.  I
  have no idea how your culture works, but if your employers just pay
  people to "work", I think you might have a problem.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
