I really like mine.
The work itself is cool and alligns well with my inclinations and talents, I earn way more than I can spend, the colleagues are nice and some are basically good friends, my boss is chill and anyway he's working in another country, so I don't even hear from him a lot.

I'd then have to explain that I don't respect his position while trying to explain that no matter how I felt about him as a person my position was about the existence of his position in the first place and now I'm fired.

I'm now fascinated by the idea of Mic's co-workers reading my words and associating them with him. Why the **** would he want that?
I was just checking for updates during a break where I didn't go down to the lunch room as usual. A co worker recognized the forum and we talked a bit about old school internet forums in general.

I highly doubt anyone would bother googling what I'm saying in here (even if anyone knew my username - which is a stretch) and said co worker is not exactly the type who would care anyway, so...

You just met somebody irl who knew the site? The ****? How many members, ex-members, and lurkers have I met without even knowing it? Weird.

There's gotta be a considerable amount of people who have never had a profile but bumped into the website when googling something about music. That's how I found the site after all. I'd been randomly bumping into the site, reading something, leaving again multiple times before I even considered getting a profile.

I’m a tech specialist for a school district. It’s fantastic. I get to drive around to various schools and see all walks of life from elementary to high school. It’s an environment I enjoy being in, and I especially enjoy not having to be solely responsible for the kids (I do not want to be a teacher) but I still get to be around them which is great because they’re hilarious. I also feel very respected and appreciated, since most school staff are technologically illiterate so solving even the easiest problems makes you their almighty savior

Pay is good, it’s incredibly unsupervised as long as you get **** done, and I’m well-liked by my coworkers and even got a flawless eval from the boss a couple weeks ago

Couldn’t ask for much better

Love my standard job at the music venue, but I do have to work at other random places to make up the hours and sometimes that can kind of suck. But sometimes it's also a lot of fun.

I was pretty good friends with the tech guy at our school.

One day he sent a mass email of Porky Pig saying “That’s All Folks” and left

They didn’t replace him until the following year

Teachers with any tech savvy at all became super popular

Even I was above average

Projectors smart boards grade books attendance records all of it got cluster ****ed

There was only one tech guy?

My only frame of reference is my own employer where we have our own department of 18 employees and our own desks and everything with a rotation of schools that we go to. The district has around 7-8000 students
