    I knew I was about to get laid off so I stopped caring and started answering questions on stack overflow all day every day instead of working.

    10k rep later I got a new job via stack overflow careers that pays twice as much.

    Moral of the story? Be efficient... even when you are not.

    This is great. I was told by my Comp Sci teacher that I'd never amount to anything. Little did she know I was working for a major company already. And when she found out she had the cheek to ask for a recommendation

    @tisaconundrum personally I find it pretty amusing but it could have seriously knocked someone's confidence so she should have not said that, hence why I'd never recommend her for a job😊
