This reminds me of this incident when I was an intern. There was an optional intern showcase (we could make a presentation out of whatever project we were working on), and two of the other interns in my team didn’t even bother coming because it was “optional”.

Our manager came over with his boss, and two of his interns out of three weren’t even there. It made him look bad in front of his boss, and you can guess the mood he was in afterward.

I’m an engineer, writer, and amateur photographer. I write about what I know and what I’m trying to make sense of.
