So Friday my boss and a colleage come to me while I'm in the server room working on cabling. They both look like they want to ask me for something. They do... "matt, how would you like to take an all expense paid trip to troy Michigan?". I reluctantly ask "why?". "we need someone to help finish cabling an onsite POC for prospect Xyz's blah blah group ASAP".
I'm a bit of a push over and since I'm constantly worried about losing my job, even though there isn't a single personal at my work to replace me on staff, I agree to go.
Did laundry, cut my hair, packed up, and am boarding a plane at SFO tonight at 10pm.
Just another one of the joys of working for a startup.
