Me: Hello Luis. This is the CSO of Glow Worm LLC.
Me: Oh! You've heard of me? Yes, the one and only.
Luis: We were just texting...
Me: I heard you may be interested in helping refine our VR device?
Luis: Potentially, yes.
Me: How would you do this? Provide all your notes in granular detail.
Luis: Well, from the definition of the problems I'd have to be debriefed on current design and intent in order to make device recommendations to refine the product.
Me: Professional, logical, reasonable. Are you willing to sign your life away to see it?
Luis: I'd have to read and review the NDA, but ultimately yes. It wouldn't be the first time. You know how much I know about electrical infrastructure and military projects? Nothing.
Me: That's perfect because this has nothing to do with electrical infrastructure or the military ... officially. You could probably club a dude with it, with the right attitude. You've got me thinking. I like it. What say you come in for an interview? I'm not only the CSO, but also the janitor, so you'll have to take your shoes off.
Luis: Before any of that, let's discuss compensation. What's the salary range?
Me: Awfully presumptive of you. Rude.
Me: Ok. Counsel has handed me the NDA. Fairly boiler plate stuff. Our accountant tells me we can write you a check. Clause 2b dictates you will be charged twice its value if it is deposited or cashed. I recommend you bury it. Like an investment. You'll also need to be chipped. Standard procedure.
Luis: Wouldn't be the first time.
Luis: I mean, it would be, officially.
Me: Something tells me I know more nothing about electrical infrastructure and military projects than you do. Not sure this is going to work out.
Can you keep a secret? Prove it.
