It’s just business was supposed to mean exactly the opposite of what it means
Told Koreanjohnny to read The Godfather cause he’s young enough and old enough to appreciate it. Read the book before I saw the movie so I looked at it differently.
While I loved the movie, Coppola made two changes to the story that always bothered me. The first one is that line everyone tells you right before they screw you at work or business or something: “It’s not personal, it’s business.”
But the truth of the line never made it to the movie; it happens in a conversation between Mike and his brother, Tom, who says that Mike’s taking it all too personally:
Just over a year ago, I told you that we live in a Cliff’s Notes society – where we think we know something, but we don’t know the whole thing.
People always make excuses for screwing others over. But I like that last line: Accidents don’t happen to people who take accidents as a personal insult.
If they tell you otherwise, don’t you believe them, don’t let’s anybody kid you.
Man, it’s always personal to someone. That’s the truth of it.
Me: You’re right. I forgot.
