On Coworkers Who Steal Your Lunch

This happened at my last job. Someone stole my little box of frozen Green Giant veggies. VEGGIES! Someone else had their leftovers stolen which is gross b/c you don't know whose germs you're dipping into. We posted lots of signs and had a suspect but could never pin down who it was.

On Interview With a Person Who Changed Careers Without Quitting Her Job

This chick is my hero. I am still haunted by my beginner's HTML class in undergrad which makes me hesitate to even Google what Ruby is.

On Rejected

@EvanDeSimone Too true. One time an interviewer even told me, "Oh don't worry, we'll get back to you whether you get the job or not. We're not like those OTHER companies!" I followed up with two emails after the interview and never heard a word from them.

On How a Stanford Professor Made A Really Good One-Cup Coffee Maker

@j a y Thanks for the tips! What's AP coffee? I googled and got a cafe in Brooklyn. I usually get dark roast beans so I'm good on that. This still seems too fussy for weekday mornings for me but maybe I'll get it and use it for the weekends.

On How a Stanford Professor Made A Really Good One-Cup Coffee Maker

@garli Does it really use a lot more coffee beans than a standard drip machine to yield one "good" strong cup of coffee? I'm reading Amazon reviews and a few ppl have mentioned that...

On Grateful for the Opportunity

@andnowlights Are we the same person? My resume is scattered and I've done contract/temp work for the last 3 years which HR people love to point out to me at interviews. Now I'm second guessing turning down a FT job offer b/c it would've meant stability (in a field I don't want to be in, with a manager that people "warned" me about during the in-person interviews (I KNOW)).
