My wife's secretary mentioned in passing that her husband's unemployment
insurance was about to run out. His job was shipped, along with 300
others' from his factory, to China.
After a few days of hanging around my shop, he absolutely fell in love
with the silliness of my operation and wanted to sign on.
I tossed him a couple of projects, a few fabrication manuals, and
answered a collection of questions he accrued over the duration.
The dude is a natural and quickly earned the respect of my other 2 guys.
Oh... and did I mention he has 21 years of CNC experience?
Did I mention he writes code for a variety of machines?
I never thought about it before, but sometimes gloats come in the form
of a human being.
A blessing indeed.

I think perhaps /all/ of the important ones do.
Yeah - you suck.

I thought about your reply and you're right. You can solve a problem
with the purchase of some new equipment, but that is limited to that
particular problem. Adding a talent, can open up a whole myriad of new
avenues, especially when you factor in access to a sounding board.
I can think out loud, but nobody answers. This guy says: "Yup, you're
idea would work, but have you thought of.......?"
Yes, you suck big time.
You were also in the right place at he right time to help out another human
being and in the process, help yourself a bunch.
As I said, you suck but you're a helluva guy.
Bet your new hire is feeling pretty good too!
