    "looking over the shoulders of some very rich men"



    "There have been a few times when looking over the shoulders of some very rich men, I was really glad not to be rich."

    Is keep watching enough definition for "looking over the shoulders of?" I have checked the Free Dictionary and the forum, but I am confused. Shouldn't I exclude "for danger or threats to oneself."

    He means '...when considering the lives and problems of some very rich men...'

    There's no implication of threats or danger.
