I read the amazing, funny, and spot-on
account of working for a tech start-up as an "older"
employee, Disrupted: My Misadventure in the
Start-Up Bubble by Dan Lyons. I finished it in one
sitting, laughing and cringing at the same time.
In multiple instances, I thought I had to contact
the talented author and ask how he had the nerve
to steal my story of working as an "older"
employee at a tech start-up. I did myself a solid
and Googled him and his story to verify that he, and the company he worked for, did exist. Living outside of Boston and working in publishing, I had a vague recollection of hearing about his story and HubSpot in the wayback recesses of my mind. I have since recommended this book to two former colleagues with whom I worked in my own tech start-up hell position. My recommendation consisted of this short summary: "We weren't crazy. This is happening elsewhere to others, too. If only we could take that validation to the bank and cash the check to pay our therapists."
I'm capturing grammar goofs I see in daily life. In an effort to "make America grammatically correct again," I'm posting goofs and corrections. Please feel free to share the horrors you see!
I was profiled in BostonVoyager! Check it out here.
I'm sure my "sid salad" is a Caesar! Try "side" for grammatical correctness.
