Work harder, not smarter.
Me to security at work as I come in this afternoon: Who’s responsible for turning on and off the generator?
Security: I am.
Me: Oh, you might want to switch it off then. Power’s back in this neighborhood.
Me: So you’re gonna switch it, right?
Me: Why the hell not?
Security: Yesterday, SBEE (state power company) came and cut power. They haven’t paid their electricity bill in months.
So they’re powering the building with a fucking generator which is oodles more expensive than paying the bill on time would have been.
P.S. My last day of Peace Corps service is July 1.
No, I’m not going to be home before Christmas.
