We were standing around, talking. There was my boss, and female co-worker. This young guy, who had dropped out of Yale and started working as a programmer, had missed his chance to go to Florida on business. He could have driven there with us. Our boss knew that this guy had wanted to go there and look for a job.
I was saying "Programming is the sort of job where you can drop out of school, even high school, and go to work". Apparently, this guy had threatened to come get me, and he had a gun. I needed to make sure that I had a gun, as well. I would get my pistol and put it into my shoulder holster.
