Not because I’m female. Not because I’m Asianish. It’s because they are asshats. Not that I don’t think that eventually the client won’t solve it. I just get them there quicker.
And they pay. Last couple times were kind of bad. Solving the raspberry pi and vision bonnet thing… getting it working. But… then, they did a reorg and told me to not do any more sbc work. Oh… but help the intern. The intern then gets a promotion.
This time, I solved a different accelerator issue for a vendor. Kernel drivers, config, user group… etc.
Then, they were able to release the build/product.
A week later, one of the new units arrive!
The one on my desk has been through more hands than a cheap hooker. Pieces missing, not original hard drive… hanging off a ribbon cable… who knows where the parts are… missing wifi module… 1/2… cover? whatever…
they gave it (the brand new unit) to someone else… who sits across from me… the intern, ironically. A different intern, but nonetheless.
Thanks…. do me like that. Let me bend over first.
