As I was waiting for my iced tea at the Starbucks at Barnes and Noble, I over heard this little-more-than-middle-aged man talking to the barist(o?).

baristo: How long have you been working here (?) ?
lmtma man: 20 years.
baristo: wow. (made that up)
lmtma man: my advice to younger people is "do what you like". after a while, compensation is (nothing). Do what you like.

  1. by the time we reach the age when compensation is nothing, we probably won't need it by then.
