Hacker for Hire

It’s Been Awhile

Wyatt • • General

Well, ti’s been a few days since my last post. Nothing too much has been going on. I’ve started up my technical support company again to get some extra cash and Ultimate Frisbee has been moved to Saturday, which is very disheartening. Both really. I’m not really all that big into doing the tech support stuff, but when people pay you $30 an hour for it, it’s not too bad of a gig. But I’m really crushed about having to move Ultimate Frisbee to Saturday. There was really no better stress outlet than a good game of UTF on Friday after a long week of horrible.

I’m considering giving my notice to CAPC this Wednesday because I can’t stand it anymore. I know that it would be jumping ship without having another job, but it’s getting really bad. I was recently asked why I was leaving, these are the ‘because’-es I came up with:

Because I refuse to do cabling again
Because the boss is trying to hire someone that he can’t afford
Because the boss is trying to hire someone that he can’t use
Because the boss can’t run the business for squat
Because our internal infrastructure is shot to hell and no one cares
Because our business model is “Sell them everything”
Because our business cannot get beyond “We have to support everything”
Because everyday I don’t like being there more and more
Because the boss has assumed that I will not hold to my word and leave

Those are the big ones. Mainly the last one. I told him if he ever made me run cable again, I would leave. I told him that three times that I would leave, but apparently, he doesn’t believe me. It’s unfortunate that I will have to resort to this to gain any respect, but I view it as better that I leave a company where I’m not respected. I think that’s what it really boils down to. There is no respect. But that would be too long for this post, so instead I’ll leave you with a current status of Project FWANJ (pronounced Fa-wan-gee).
