Programmer or Parolee?15 Mar 2016 / Paul Epps
Our office building is next door to a probation field office . . .
I have a game I play in the parking lot each morning: Programmer or Parolee. I spot someone, guess if he’s here for a programming challenge or a meeting with his parole officer, then wait to see if he shows up in our office.
If a methed-out skinhead comes in for a programming challenge, I lose today’s game.
