a startup i used to work for and own private stock in is getting bought and they sent me a bunch of stuff to sign that I do not understand at all

is this a "pay someone to explain it to me" situation? If so, what kind of person should I seek out? I understand this so little that i don't even understand who might be able to understand it.

also is this situation generally good news or bad news? afaik IPO is the good news so I would guess that this is middling/bad?

i wouldn't say if it was because it seems like stock laws are the only laws that are enforced for people like me who can pass for cis/het/white/male; but it wasn't glitch for sure

all the work stuff is true but the main thing i wish i knew when i was younger was that when you gently caress up at work, nobody gives a poo poo at all

i once accidentally shorted out a microcontroller dev kit during an internship and i was so ashamed and scared that i was going to get in huge trouble and it turned out nobody cared at all, and they never do and never will. So stressing about work is a huge waste of time as long as you're not a doctor or something where failures can actually harm human beings

i feel like there's a lot of societal pressure on people to accept meetings but as an autistic person who doesn't feel hardly any pressure to conform to social mores I can tell you that you have nothing to lose but your meetings

decline all meetings unless you personally would get value from them! And if they're mandatory and more than 20 people are invited you can accept and then just not go, noone will notice! its free real estate!

Do people really feel personally respected by the fact that slack emojis have skin tones? It seems really weird to me because the default emoji is not the color of any human's skin, and it almost feels like the implied message is that a thumbs up has a different meaning depending on the color of the person's skin which seems gross as gently caress.

i feel the same way about having multiple genders (e.g. male and female detective) that mean the exact same thing in use and would prefer that everything was gender ambiguous but at least with those it feels a little bit more like a representative choice of like "i am doing detective work" instead of just abstract "joy" or "agreement" or whatever

i think it irks me because 1) the design choice slack made to show multiple skin tones is bad and it feels problematic to tally up the by-race participation in an emoji, and 2) i use the default ones instead of the extremely pasty white ones that match my gross body and i don't like to be reminded of that

im glad other people are getting a positive experience out of it though. i was curious about that.

wait a minute, once a new hire uploaded a whole suite of (unironically likeable) panda emojis and it just now occurred to me that she was (probably intentionally because she was v cool and good) providing the team with a gender neutral option for almost all of the common reactions
