I'm discovering (too late, I'm afraid) that success in professional life is mainly a matter of knowing who hates whose guts at the right time. In the workplace, where it's not uncommon to find people who have been working together for several decades, this is not difficult.

In my office there is a great chain of animosity, extending even to people who retired and passed on years ago.

Expressing hatred for the right people at the right time is the proper way to curry favor in the modern office. Doing so will lead to self-hatred, but think of your career.
