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.
