    I have a jr designer who is fresh out of school. We hired him in the last month of his graduating term and he has been working full time with us for a couple of weeks now.

    Kid seems happy, but is always out the door at 5.

    Today is the last night of his grad show, it's industry night. He came into work today with a stack of business cards, and asked me if he could work on his portfolio during his lunch break.

    I'm not sure if he's retarded, or if he thinks I'm retarded.

    How would you play this?

    • Give a late project and see how he acts. If he's not committed have a talk and outline some goals.Hayoth
    • And he's a kid.Hayoth

    1000 flyers prints to trashcan cos the client played with the content in 30 emails... Put it here, change this, push it to... The final text is...

    Sorry, this was not the definitive one, can you change it now...

    The flyer is on dealer's hands now, i can not do this change now, mate!

    • Shame on you for not sticking to a deadline.i_monk

    quick questine for any mac pro trashcan users..

    since our internal hard drive is so fucking small (for guys working with video) what external hard drive setup do you guys work with? Ive been using 'WD my passport Ultras' and they only seem to last 6 months or so, the drives (same kind) I use for storage I have no issues with, it seems these things cant handle constant use, I just had another drive today start beeping on me, which basically means its dying, in this case, im losing the drive I set my AE and Premiere cache on, this is the 3rd drive thats crapping out on me in the last 2 months. is there an external drive made to handle constant use and not just for data backup?

    • that shit shouldn't die after 6 months or 2 lol. something else isn't oksted
    • i figured 8-10 hour days constantly reading 4k footage might just be too much for these thingsmoldero
    • or maybe it's just too damn hot where i livemoldero

    I was feeling annoyed with a client, a project, and myself all day.

    Then I figured out a CSS problem I've been trying to solve within squarespace after explaining the problem to a developer. Then got a couple checks in the mail. Both reminders of why we do this shit everyday.

    Back to work

    At the end of a wholly pointless phonecall just now I fat-thumbed hanging up, instead putting onto speakerphone, which likely caught a large, wearied 'jeeesus christ' before I realised what I'd done.

    • how much does a newborn cost in these days?drgs
    • On average, US hospital deliveries cost $3,500. Overall, it is aggregative costs & a long term living commitment combined w/ investments for multiple futures.imbecile
    • my problem with kids is that they're detestable boring little fuckers with no boundaries. but i don't have money because i choose to work 3 days a week an dkingsteven
    • ... spend what i get on drugs, booze and synths. and yet somehow look 10 years younger than any of my school mates. children are BS.kingsteven

    • kids aren't BS, they are the only path you have for ensuring the survival of your direct bloodline, unless that isn't the kind of thing you're interested inmonospaced
    • yeah, let me end the bloodline my parents and ancestors worked so hard to maintain, and all of this for money, lolGeorgesII

    • also georges, not for money. i get to choose my work based on its social impact and not $$$. i have money and haven't felt like if done a days 'work' in years.kingsteven
    • i don't walk around yelling BREEDERS btw. I just think kids aren't that great and parents are usually a bit brainwashed by the turmoil of their situation...kingsteven

    • be called animalistic, selfish principles. but yet the most reasoned logical people are totally doo-lally when it comes to their kids.kingsteven
    • You've never heard a man say he wants a son to carry on his name, or a child to carry on his line? I find that hard to believe.monospaced
    • I'm certain that experience in this particular arena is absolutely necessary. (FWIW, All kids are shits apart from your own).Morning_star
    • and btw, we are animals ... passing on genetics is the strongest driving force behind most human activity ... so it's not something to be ashamed ofmonospaced
    • rubbers. never with out it!

      LOL "color may very"
      pango
    • not at all, it's good parenting that makes good people above all else... bad genes don't make a bad person, the name passing on thing just 'proof of splurt'.kingsteven
    • i meant to write 'bad' genes, because it is kinda moot these days. i've seen my (otherwise exemplary) parents run.kingsteven
    • I'm not even talking about making good or bad people here. It's about legacy. All life on the planet strives toward procreation and survival of the species.monospaced
    • We're not exempt. Also, respectfully, I don't believe you've never heard people say that they want children to pass on their bloodline. It's pretty darn common.monospaced
    • As a father having children is far more rewarding than continuing ones own bloodline lol but I get his point. Thing is I wasn't crazy about the idea until itfadein11
    • happened. Best experience ever despite the relentless hard work :)fadein11
    • And an ongoing experience which gets better I have found so far. Early bit is pretty traumatic haha.fadein11

    • Kids can be cool. But some of us have no desire to reproduce or bring another human into this already overpopulated uncertain existence.sea_sea
    • I get its a natural step to follow when you are young and coupled up. but it also takes strength to make the choice to stay childless.sea_sea
    • sure there are only bad parents. No bad kids.
      Let's just say don't ever let me baby sit your kids. Lol
      pango
    • good point, sea_sea ... I respect that wholeheartedlymonospaced
    • mono, of course i've heard people say it as a sentiment. and fine as an afterthought in a "well done, your dick worked" kinda way. but kinda meaningless unlesskingsteven
    • you've got a hereditary title or sthg.kingsteven
    • you do have a hereditary title ... your name and your dnamonospaced
    • that sentiment isn't coming from a "well done your dick worked" place, it's a real one many people feel very strongly, and why kids are so important to manymonospaced
    • it's why grandparents want to live to see grandchildren, and why most parents are particular about who you're with, and so much moremonospaced
    • meh. we have 3 boys under the age of 7. expensive, yes. but worth every penny. they give me something that money just can't buy.kona

    ^ It's interesting how perspective can affect happiness. My best friend of 30 years is also early 40's, in fantastic shape, runs iron man, travels the world, and is hugely successful in his career. However, he sees himself as a failure for never getting married and having a family. Over the years, it's manifested into crippling depression. It's hard to talk with him sometimes because the conversation always turns dark. I love him, but I wish he shared your perspective.

    • Why does he not try now? men are still healthily fertile until their 50s before they need concern themsevles aboutgenetic mishappery.detritus
    • he's definitely good to go to get a life partner. imo better for his happiness to start looking for her now.imbecile
    • Aye, exactly. If he's rich and healthy, he's likely got another 40 years in him —
      he gets to enjoy the best of all worlds.

    Recently attended the 40th birthday of a close friend from childhood. He's always been cool, non judgemental, great with his family. We've remained friends throughout the years. Some people in attendance were the popular preppy kids from 20+ years ago. That time has not treated them well... It was nice to be single, in shape, without kids, enjoying a little career success as I heard stories of balding, weight gain, divorce and remarriage that all aged these people 10-20 faster than myself.
