Some people from our company spent a couple hours volunteering at Second Harvest this morning. I dunno, it was pretty fun. My high school had a community service requirement to graduate so I did a little then, of course nothing like Gloria Lee or anything, and I pretty much did nothing in college, just the occasional random thing like today.
Anyway, it was the first time I’d done something in the corporate context, and it was kind of funny to me. I guess people volunteer the way the work, because it was intense. People were just super serious, actually running around to do the work, focused on intensity and efficiency. Nothing like high school. We were packing boxes and at one point someone asked, “So who are the end-users of these boxes?” I dunno, it was just a funny way to ask that question. I love being a nerdy engineer.
