Good News, Bad News

26 May 2003 /

After more than two months out of work, The Programmer lands a consulting job . . .

Good news: I get paid and I need the cash.

Bad news: I work for a guy who delivers insights like

“See, now it’s not just about working better-faster-cheaper, it’s about working smarter!

in the tone of someone who just found a cure for cancer, or who thinks that without him, we’d all be actively seeking out ways to work stupider.

More good news: He doesn’t micromanage my work, because he has no comprehension of what it is I actually do.

Thus spoke The Programmer.
