    This is such a toughie for me. In fancy joints, they might take it as a point of frustration on your part: “ugh, this service is slow to clear the table; get this mess away from me *stacks plates*”. Or, even worse, that you’re doing their job for them.

    But in a place like Waffle House, I’ll do it.

    Really?

    The first verse:

    The other night, dear

    As I lay sleeping

    I dreamt I held you in my arms

    But when I woke, dear

    I was mistaken

    So I hung my head and I cried

    I always took it to mean the person is mourning the loss of a loved one and they dreamed they were still alive.

    Also, I once heard that this song was about a horse named Sunshine. 🤷‍♂️

    I access mostly through the Lemmy PWA. I saw some weirdness yesterday. I didn’t think to try to capture screenshots or error info. It seemed like I couldn’t get a response from the server and the PWA just pooped the bed. I was able to get on an alt with a different instance so I figured some admin-y stuff was going on.

    I had to log in to upvote and comment, but all seems well right now!




  • I would second this.

    I’ve been at my current company as a senior SW engineer since 2015. Mostly because it’s a good company, I like the people, I have mentors, the culture is good, and it’s all remote. It’s for a government contractor which means I ended up getting switched to a different project every few years when a project begins to sunset. Most of my experience is with various government contractors and this is the only one that’s been able to transition me to other project. I’m currently working on my 3rd major project with this company and various minor projects in between.

    My annual raises have been about 3~5%, but even then I began to feel like it wasn’t enough. During my last transition, I mentioned to my new boss that I felt like I wasn’t being compensated enough. He asked me to name my price and I said something reasonable. He was able to give me exactly that and a few months later during the typical raise cycle I got another 5% on top.

    I really think a lot of companies don’t put much thought into retention once someone is brought onboard. You just get scooped up and they do the 3~5% living expenses increase but not much beyond that. If you’re feeling like you’re not being compensated fairly, definitely bring it up to a manager or someone in the chain of command that can do something about it.
