in thread (OT) On starting a new job

My grandfather worked his way up from being an oil field worker to being a vice president of Exxon over the course of many long years. During his tenure as a manager, one of his new hires asked "How can I succeed here at Exxon?"

He thought about the question, and told the employee three things:

  • Show up on time
  • Don't get sick
  • Do "good" things
I currently have this posted above my computer monitor as a form of encouragement, and it has served me well. The moral of my little anecdote: post slightly cheesy sayings that resonate well with management in your workspace, and they'll perceive you as a real go-getter.

(For those who are interested, the anecdote is real, the moral is not. :)

[thepkd]: sorry. i mean $aohoaoh[0]
[GotToBTru]: $aohoaoh is an array reference tho
[thepkd]: some guy was suggesting $aohoaoh[0]->{'foo '}[0]->{}. This wouldnt work.
[GotToBTru]: you're mixing notation there I think
[GotToBTru]: $aohoaoh->[0] is a hash reference, so $aohoaoh->[0]->{ key1} would work
[1nickt]: If 1nickt is the some guy, that's not what he said.
[GotToBTru]: thepkd might not know about last hour of cb
[1nickt]: my $x = $aohoaoh->[0]->{' foo'}->[0]->{'bar' }; should work
[thepkd]: its not $aohoaoh->[0]. its $aohoaoh[0]->{'foo '}. Tried it. Its working. Thnaks
