I was sent up to our Jersey office to work on the Disaster Recovery site. Easy day, a few users, several issues, but no pressure, and a quiet environment. A nice welcome change from the constant pressure and noise of the trading floor.
I never get used to people screaming across desks at each other, hollering orders, screaming for support, phones ringing, machines beeping, I just can’t get used to this environment. Â It just goes against my quiet nature. Contrary to what people may believe about my personality, I’m actually shy and quiet. My outspoken way is a self defense and preservation mechanism. Fake it till you make it right?
We ordered lunch from this place on the firm. That’s right, special project, special treatment. I have to say, considering that it was takeout, and it came rather quickly, the food was pretty good.
I had steak, mashed potatoes and carrott balls. Yum.. I asked for the steak to be “well done” because I’m not a fan of bloody food, and as expected it was more like “medium well done”. I always expect them to go 1 level less than what I ask, so I always ask for the highest level of burn….
The mashed potatoes were pretty tasty, I enjoyed them. The carrots were pretty good as well. Not a bad place at all… If you end up in Jersey, in the harborside area, give this spot a try.. It was pretty good..
