Client Flattery Is Good For The Soul

By on

I recently had to step in as the lead ColdFusion programmer on a project while my co-worker was on vacation. Apparently, I did a good job as this was what was sent to my boss:

"Ben has been such a tremendous help in Martin's absence. Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate his professionalism and prompt attention to the post-launch issues with which we are dealing right now. He had some big shoes to fill but he is doing an admirable job! So thanks! You might want to give him hazard pay .. We are a rough bunch!"

Client-appreciation is enough to make it all worth while... but the "hazard pay" certainly wouldn't hurt ;)

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
