The awesomeness of Uncle Bob

Uncle Bob pens The New CTO. A lunchtime conversation opens:

“So, what did you think of that?” I asked as we sat down at our regular table in the cafeteria. As I scanned the other tables in the lunchroom I could see that many other teams were leaning in to their conversation and speaking in semi-hushed tones. The normally light-hearted lunchtime banter had been replaced with a new intensity.

“It started pretty well.” said Jasper. “I mean he was nice enough at first, introducing himself as the new CTO and all.”

“Yeah, but then it started to get weird.” said Jasmine. “I mean, how dare he imply that we’re not behaving professionally? We’ve been working our asses off!”

I won't spoil the ending.
