Apparently, since I started working this month, I’ve not only my ability to type normally on my macbook, with the regular international keyboard (I work on a German keyboard at work), I’ve also grown really fond with the start-up culture, and thereby becoming a snob.
My previous full-time employment was at a large company with over 15,000 employees worldwide, with a brand name everybody knows. My current company is officially about 2.5 years old and is projected to break even this summer. It’s very strange, very amusing but very fascinating. I thoroughly enjoy seeing increasing success just within these three weeks of being there!
H works at a huge company, so they have a budget for everything. While currently enjoying his two weeks off from accumulated overtime (Start-uppers be laughing at this), he told me about his dinner event with his department that would take place tonight.
H: So we can’t have dinner together tonight.
I: Oh ok. Hmm I feel like we haven’t cooked for a while. I miss cooking.
H: We’ll be cooking tonight.
I: Really? At a colleague’s place?
H: No, at a cooking studio.
I: (snortles) Big companies.
Am I right?!
