Fuck You. Pay Me.

Imagine, turning around to a lawyer, an accountant, a doctor and telling them that they weren’t going to be paid.

Dear Lawyer

I listened to your advice – but I am not going to use it – so I don’t owe you.

The Gig Economy is Dopey

The following post comes courtesy of John T. Maloney, who sent me an email reply to one of my newsletters and it just was too good not to share. Thankyou John. Nicely delivered.

The ‘gig economy’ is dopey. Always had a problem w/the term.

For me, a gig is a trident tip spear used for gigging. Period.

Growing up in rural and coastal Connecticut, from April to November, gigging was a principal pastime. We’d go after anything gigable, but mostly bullfrogs and flounder. It was very effective.
