Take another swing, but make him German. And wistful.

Why is Canada, in this case, but the sentiment is a good one. :(

The last time I was on Nextdoor, it was someone complaining about affordable housing being built. Let's see what they're complaining about now...ah, yes.

That was ~20 years ago when I was a teenager, and has stuck with me ever since. I like to think things are getting better, at least where I have a say, but it's disappointing to see how little progress has been made in aggregate.

Family lore tells the tale of my aunt, a PhD-holder with years of edu admin experience. Upon learning she was a vice principal, someone commented "That's because you're a woman." Without missing a beat, "Yes, otherwise I'd be the principal." (...which she was, eventually.)

I _think_ the point was somehow to communicate something about the "really rich", who aren't the folks earning $140k/year, but this seemed like a bad attempt.

This tweet, man. If you're earning $140K and not funding an RRSP, maybe you should spend $5K on a well-dressed financial advisor instead of $5K on clothing.

#16 showing a lot of grit here. I'm also really curious how you end up with four goalies out of commission.

I'm therefore happy to inform her that even though The Solution™️ was a total flop, its architect has since made partner at Microsoft.

She got four years in prison and was released a few years ago. Google shows she is now a supporter of criminal justice reform and "a believer in second chances."

Such was her chutzpah that she then fraudulently claimed $53k of unemployment insurance by omitting that her termination was for, y'know, criming.

To be fair to her, she was probably distracted by her side hustle: stealing the identities of her interns to embezzle money from Microsoft. She stole $457k before getting caught and fired.

Then she fixed it. Except now my return flight was from Kitchener to Seattle. Right cities, wrong order. Third time was the charm.

Luckily, Microsoft had an army of staffers who would help you negotiate relocation. I remember not being impressed with the staffer helping me. She originally booked my return flight from Seattle to Waterloo. Waterloo, Iowa, that is.

I was an intern, and then a full-time employee, working on The Solution™️ to privacy and identity theft on the internet. This work necessitated being physically present in Washington state at Microsoft's head office.

From time to time, I am reminded of my Microsoft days, and one individual in particular.
