Ed-vise Episode 155

A fast paced Hershey Walk GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Hershey stepping fast this morning. Put his nose to the sidewalk and away he went!

Today’s bit o trivia: The Great Dissenter. At one point in our nations history we had in place Jim Crow laws. After the Civil War, Congress put in place a bunch or laws about protecting civil rights. These were designed to protect the rights of free slaves in the south. Well, several legal challenges were brought up and the Supreme Court of the day worked hard to strike down these protections. Enter The Great Dissenter: Justice John Marshall Harlan. In the case of Plessy v. Ferguson (separate rail cars for blacks and whites), Harlan wrote “Our Constitution is color blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens.” And this coming from a former slave owner.

Anyway…

Tech Talk Tuesday Ed-vise today.

Talking about the amount of hours we work.

These past few days I was fortunate enough to have my cousins come and visit. I love when they stop in. Even if for only a few moments.

Do you ever hear the stories from people older than you about how hard they had it? It starts out with the statement “Back in my day.” I will call it “Comparison of Prideful Crap.” That conversation that points out to you that working 50,000 hours a day while fighting some patriotic war overseas while being physically abused by your dad is the ONLY way to live.

I will tell you this: it’s crap. Yup, I said it…crap.

To the crowd boasting with CPC, think about this: did you like working 50,000 hours? What do you have to show for it other than CPC stories? Were you paid the value of your time? Probably not. So you gave the bulk of your life to a company that took every bit of that one precious commodity…time.

For the people on the receiving end of a CPC rant, keep in mind you are much better at negotiating your time/ money ratio. So don’t feel bad. I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember no matter how much you push the envelope, it will always be stationary. Think on that for a minute!

Peace
