Did I act my age?

Mar 22 37 Comments

I got a hard deadline for EOD. The boss yelled twice at me since morning and to cool off I go to pick my lunch from Panda Express. The guy behind the counter serves me some attitude and schools me to read from the label and not point the dish. I breathe in twice and order from what's written on the labels while the guy looks at me in anger. I didn't lock horns, paid the amount and walked out of the store.

      People who post on blind about how uncouth it is to post on blind don’t act their age

      I like where this is going. People who post on Blind about other people posting on Blind about how uncouth it is to post on Blind don't act their age.

    Some get technical issues/work done by contribution and others by yelling. I'm preparing for my interviews. Leetcoded 60 problems.

      My gut thinking is gender matters to HR in a strange, not easy to understand way. Imbalance. Also, HR works for the Corp

    Leonard Cohen said “Never lament casually”. You don’t know why people yell. Stay calm if it’s not a pattern.

    Well done

    At 40 I would've left Panda Express when I got attitude there. I will not eat food served by someone with an issue with me. At 30 I probably would've done what you did.
