Woman next to me had been charging her FarmVille device for 1hr and removes it from the charge. I took the opp to plug in my own phone and she says “I don’t think we can both charge at one time” .....

Lol - "Farmville device"


and motions to indicate she would like to plug her phone in again. Really? There’s nicer ways to ask :/ my response: “I figured, but we can share after I’ve had an hour too”




Then what happened? It’s like half the story


Carry a small multi plug so you can “charge at one time ..."

Did you plug your phone into a charging cable she had plugged in and used or did you plug in your own charger?

Important question cause if it’s the former, you’re the asshole regardless of how she used her phone.

You can’t leave the story hanging like this, several lives are waiting to know what happened. Did you give in? Was there a pillow fight? We need to know!

It’s 2018 get your own charging cable

I think OP is saying there's one outlet. This is why I carry portable chargers so I can charge whenever and wherever without worrying.

HR/LEGAL HELP: I work for a multi-state remote employer. I am doing a classification study of sorts and believe that we may have to reclassify some positions. The impact is moving exempt and salaried positions to non-exempt. This has caused us to consider what states we are/should be hiring from. Any issues with excluding candidates from certain states that may have more stringent pay laws? Appreciate your help!


I've to chose between two offers:
1. Capgemini- Dell project, 19LPA - variable pay 1.7 + 40k joining bonus. HR told me she will workout if I've any better offer even though not sure 😊
2. Citi corp india services ltd- 24.30 LPA fixed.

Which one I can chose in terms growth, job security?

Yoe- 8+ yrs, tech stack- .net core, Angular


I've been the first hire in a deep tech startup that is now post series A with a strong outlook. My background is a mix of business and ML and I gravitated to product since I find it easy to understand and explain complex topics.

I've been for along time a jack of all trades, which I like because I enjoy the 0->1 but I don't how I could translate this to a future role since I'm not a pure PM or PMM. Anyone has any similar experience? How do you make yourself marketable from such a role?
