It was an intern job for 2.5$ /h. I removed a bunch of technical debt, made their modx site localized (with a weird approach though but hey, I was an intern) and wrote a few new pages. I loved every minute of working there until the end, but had it lasted a bit longer than a month I'd have probably burned the place to the ground when I realized that my friends had earned twice as much at McDonalds and I could've earned about the same amount writing one excel macro a day.

    That's why we should be thinking about what we learn, not how much we earn.

    (That's so fucked up though)

    Gotta hate knowing how much "better" the other person is doing.
    We'd be happier if we didn't know the greenness of the neighbour's yard.

    Or if we didn't mind it being greener.

    @gnog But this meant two extra festival days for them. Money isn't just a number, $ is a unit of entertainment, and $/mo is a unit of living standard. Not something to ignore when you're the exception.
