After 3 weeks in my new job as QA of a software development team, i think i have confirmed my theory on shit management. People pay you because they need shit to be cleared up.
Maybe there is another line of work where returns are much higher, but i’m not doing that, for some reason. Maybe the job involves selling my backside, and i don’t want to do that. Maybe it doesn’t, but need some skill set that i don’t have yet. So here i am, still managing shit, which is familiar enough that i am still coping, but different enough that i’m still learning something that will hopefully still be useful further down the road, trading what’s left of my youth for experience and skills that will count.
Will i ever stop having to manage shit one day?
