Pilot fish goes to work as the “computer guy” for a small company that prints tags for the garment industry.
“This included maintaining the local and online order databases for the labels we supplied,” fish says. “It also meant supporting two or three Asian print shops we partnered with, since they were closer to the actual mills.”
Of course, there’s about a 12-hour difference between those Asian outfits and fish’s company. That means he spends a fair amount of time on his home computer chatting with them via instant messages, as well as accessing their PCs across the internet.
Can I get my home internet connection paid for by the company? fish asks his boss, who used to have fish’s job but is now the plant’s general manager.
