I’m working in Delaware this week. First time, ever. Delaware isn’t even all that far from home — 90 mins each way, which is just 15 mins more than it takes for me to get to my office in NJ! I don’t want to drive 160 miles found trip every day, so I’m doing a mix of staying overnight and driving home. One of those on-off-on-off deals. This way, two nights I can work late, and two nights where I can see my family. I was glad that I had the flexibility to do what was best for me and the family, and balancing what work I had to do. Makes life easier.
Delaware looks the same as the rest of America, though I still don’t understand why their automotive license plates are so weird. You know what I’m talking about — the dark blue plates with a with just a “4” on it. What’s up with that? It must be a popular place — the hotel is booked solid, and I’m stuck in a smoking room. Listen, I don’t care how much the staff says they cleaned the room. They put an air ionizer in here as well, and I’ve got it running nonstop. The room still stinks. Strangely enough, I’m in the mood for a cigar. 🙂
After work, we did have a very nice team lunch, which is always a plus when travelling on company business with your colleagues. If it’s a good group like this one, then it’s a good experience. I can’t remember the last time, if ever, that I had a bad trip because of the group dynamic. Basically everyone is fine to travel and work with. I guess I’ve been lucky, or people in general are not that bad, you know?
