I love reading. Fiction, non-fiction, any genre; I love it all.
Today I read The Jaunt. It’s a short story by Stephen king, and it’s fantastic.
You know who they are.
I’ve previously written about their recruitment process, which you can find here: Getting a job at the world’s biggest tech company
Now lets talk about what it’s like working there!
I was involved in a horrendously awkward scenario this evening.
It’s Friday, so we were having pizza. My girlfriend had a two for one voucher, so it wasn’t even expensive. We went all out and had some fancy cookie dough desert too. It’s Friday, you have to treat yourself, right?
We’re having a great old time. Our server was a lovely girl who couldn’t do enough for us. We agreed that she’d get a nice big tip at the end.
All done, we get the bill. We’ve done this time and time again; we know our stuff. This isn’t our first rodeo. We’re going to press the little “Add gratuity” button when paying by card, give her a big tip and everything is fine.
There wasn’t the option to “Add gratuity” when we were paying.
We had no change.
We couldn’t tip our fantastic waitress.
When I was about 12 I had a pair of Timberland boots. They were great. Nothing could stop them, and I was the only guy in the school who had a pair.
I’ve recently started seeing them start popping up again. Since when have Timberland boots been back?!
In NYC they seemed to be everywhere, but not as much over here.
I think they’re great, but really don’t think I can pull them off. I saw someone wearing them with light grey joggers today. Wasn’t the best look. I’d at least wear them with decent jeans.
Might have to give them a go again soon!
