I'm of Arab decent and once a client personnel asked me, to my face, if I kill ppl? If Trump becomes president, she would hold a gun to my head and ask the same question. She is herself from Poland.
Has anyone adopted a dog while traveling on a project every week? I want to get a puppy but I don’t want to do him/her dirty by not being around :(

Started sharing my screen during a conference call with the project and client team. Forgot my resume was up. FML
