  • Do you think whether or not you like your job contributes to how happy you are overall?

    Answered on 12th December 2007:

    Without a doubt. I was miserable at the last firm I was at (it was the work, not the people) and I was bringing way too much of that misery and stress home. I was fortunate to be in a situation where I could just quit (it took me 3 months to actually do - not so easy) and take some time to regroup and figure out a new plan. Here I am, 2 years later, owning and operating my own business and loving almost every minute of it. And I am happy.

  • What do some of your colleagues at work do that you find very annoying?

    Answered on 12th December 2007:

    I was never certain of who the violator was, but I could not stand the person(s) who would tear off half a bagel and then leave the mangled half behind in the office kitchen as if someone else might want it. Either use a knife, save the other half for later, or feed it to the birds (except where prohibited by law of course). And then there was Ed. Every Thursday the firm would order in dinner for the attorneys. Dinner was not supposed to start until 6. But Ed would always seem to be the first one there and would pick at all the food with his bare hands. Note: Ed's an old guy who uses a handkerchief. Need I say more?! Anyway, to escape the Ed contamination, we started having to eat at 5:15. Sorry, my ramblings probably qualify more as "gross" than "annoying."
