The perils of taking work home
Zainab and I moved into a new residence a month ago, but haven’t completely moved out of my parents’ house. Most of our stuff is still there, and we get all our mail there. We dropped in yesterday because my parents got us a cake for our anniversary. In the mail was a box of chocolates.
Me: “Google sent us some chocolates.”
Zainab: “What? How did they know?”
(Insert moments of staring at each other working out the privacy implications)
Me: “It’s not for us. It’s for HasGeek. And it’s new year’s greetings.”
Zainab and I have been together for six years and married three. HasGeek just turned a year old. HasGeek’s registered address is my parents’ residence. We’ve been having a good conversation with Google and other companies thanks to Droidcon, JSFoo and other events this year.
