Yesterday, an itern brought the newest interm by to introduce him to poeople in the area. When I looked at the new intern, probably an electrical engineer based on the area we work in, I thought, "He sure looks like a geek!"

Sometime later, I realized that is how I appeared to people when I started working commercially 30 some years ago. It was an indcustrial evnironment and my first assignment had me spending 3 months in a new area doing checkout.

One of the contractors left for a few months, and, upon his return, commented to someone, "What happened to Tim? When I left, he was meek and mild, now he acts like he has spiked hair!".

What was your introduction to the commerical world like?

Tim
