Today we are seeing off two people from our “Team” at Stealth R Us. Officially, we have two founders and one employee on the books, but we have a few people working as contractors and such to try…
I “moved” to Palo Alto a couple of weeks ago. All I brought with me was a suitcase and my laptop, which doesn’t matter because I’m working about 15 hours a day, 7 days a week. My housing situation…
Merb is where I cut my teeth. I love that framework. But now, with Rails 3 being out and everyone saying Merb = Rails 3, I used it for my current project. Without any experience in Rails, I must say…
Recently, when I went to McDonalds I saw on the menu that you could have an
order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets.
We dont have half dozen nuggets, said the teenager at the counter.
You dont? I replied.
We only have six, nine, or twelve, was the reply.
So I cant order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?
So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.
I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady
behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of
those dividers that they keep by the cash register and placed it between
our things so they wouldnt get mixed.
After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the divider,
looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the
bar code, she said to me, Do you know how much this is?
I said to her, Ive changed my mind; I dont think Ill buy that today.
She said OK, and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to
what had just happened.
A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and
pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she
said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card
number, so she was using the ATM thingy.
(I still keep shuddering!!!)
I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. Do you need
some help? I asked.
She replied, I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door
unlocker. Now I cant get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a
distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?
Hmmm, I dont know. Do you have an alarm, too? I asked.
No, just this remote thingy, she answered, handing it and the car keys to
As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, Why dont you
drive over there and check about the batteries. Its a long walk.
Several years ago, we had an intern who was none too swift. One day she was
typing and turned to a secretary and said, Im almost out of typing paper.
What do I do?
Just use paper from the photocopier, the secretary told her.
With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it
on the photocopier and proceeded to make five blank copies.
Brunette, by the way!!
A mother called 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take
her kid to the emergency room the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher
tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother
says, I just gave him some ant killer.
Dispatcher responded In panic, Rush him in to emergency!
FINAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Life is tough. Its even tougher if you’re stupid !
Reviewing a newly designed logo with a newly acquired client:
“I love the overall look, but I want to ni**er it up some”
Yes, he dropped the N-Bomb.
How do you deal with those kinds of clients? Just smile and nod?
