The waiter I was assigned to work with absolutely blew up on me. Yelling and screaming at me in the kitchen, he smashed all the dishes in his hand onto the floor. The salad guy, and the dishwasher, their mouths were gaping. The chef had to stop cooking and turn around to see what the hell was going on.
I love this message Louie! It’s true, I have found that you can usually outlast the worst people in a workplace. Also a good reason to build stability so that eventually you can choose the people you surround yourself with. Great reflection!
Great content and a valuable lesson Louie. I have launched 3 apps this year and haven't made a single dollar, but as you mentioned, I'm not going to give up.
I needed to hear this! Thank you for sharing.
love this one "Only losers attack people from anonymous accounts." and it's 💯 true.
I really needed to hear this advice. Lately I’ve been covering contested health topics and sometimes the discussion devolves into baseless name-calling. I always encourage diversity of thought and only ask that the discussion remain civil. When that doesn’t happen, I often get discouraged. Thanks for the reminder to keep plowing through nonetheless!
I'm sorry you had to go through this. But I'm so inspired by how you've come through it all. Thanks for sharing this with us, Louie.
"you can't throw stones at every dog that barks".. Learnt this on my own.. very late.. at high cost (still could not apply to all scenarios).. One of the waiter "friend" happend to be my own "dddddddd".. cuts your heart and mind with his sarcastic cool words..
anyways.. and I remember my job is not to make him quit.. rather do what I have to do.. just before writing this.. had to deal with my manager "friend" :)
I was already 24, sitting at my first-day job as a software engineer when I showed an MVP of a software product I built on what I understood from my boss.
He was furious and yelled at me over some UX/UI things - that I fixed by the next day.
A few years later, I realized it took me two afternoons to throw together a working product with JS that would have taken him days with his praised enterprise Java Stack. Maybe he felt I was going too fast and would leave the company soon - which I did two years later.
That MVP has grown into a software product being used by banks. I’m happy I could work on the foundations for another 2 years.
But a superior yelling at me is an unforgettable experience.
