Eight years is about right. My parents did the same thing to me sophomore year. I supported myself at school cleaning offices at night and was fortunate enough to get some decent jobs after graduation. Good thing I was younger back then!
Ugh. This article made me feel like I was "back in that shitty startup." One of my experiences included a husband and wife CEO "team" that had violent fights. Never again.
Oh.... what about "Your Boss Gets Fired?" And then you do all the boss's work in addition to yours, that's the pattern I've always seen. Upper management comes up with such clever cost cutting measures!
Clock time when the plate is full, Maker time when it's not. The most productive results occur with a solid six hours of Maker time.
Too empathic here. I would be the one crying under my desk.
What a fun profile of someone doing something interesting. I wonder if cordwaining would make a good hobby?
@Katni We call it Otter as in "we ought to" Otter do this. Otter do that.
I was lucky once too! Whilst I was a teenager, I was walking along the side of one of those roads that has no sidewalk and I got sideswiped. I fell into a snowbank and the driver pulled over and exclaimed, "I've never done anything like this before!" This was during a time when I was getting in a lot of trouble and I didn't want my parents to know, so I politely asked the driver if he would drive me to my home. I ended up with a bruise on my left hip and probably should have gotten medical attention, but I could just hear my alcoholic parents: "For crying out loud, blah blah blah..." I was better off not making a big deal about it, for sure.
$80 something for internet here. Still better than the 80's when my ATT bill was sometimes $300 per month for long distance dialup charges.
@garli yes, room temperature pizza is great. I also like it super hot right out of the oven. It's the in-between lukewarm state that I dislike, which resembles what happens when you try to re-heat it.
