Les Connards

Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud.

-The Commitments

Once I was an employee of a regular company. Then I became an employee of a consulting company so my clients treated me like crap but at least I was still someone's employee. Then I became an independent consultant and went down a notch further in the pecking order. Then I became a software vendor for my own software - rikshaw drivers look down on me. I am black and I'm proud.

In other news, I had a grand teleconference with some traders from BNP Paribas/NYC. Let me tell you something - New Yorkers are not known for their friendly demeanor. Traders are not known for their friendly demeanor. New York traders are a f*cking assholes. And rude French traders transplanted to New York are the cherry on my pie.
