No one bills the actual number of hours worked even though we were publicly told that we should do that.


I'll go first - all of my client's contractors hate each other and are perpetually trying to push work onto one another.

Stay the f*ck away from my snacks in the fridge.

I usually feel better when I’m around people, but Im the kind of person who can get into their thoughts very easily during a party, event or whatever.
