Getting to Know You

My new co-worker was faced with many challenges today.  Though I asked him to assist me, when he did complications arose which could be seen as the result of his own actions.  I got to see him perform under considerable pressure when he was placed “on the spot.”  He showed great qualities of persistence, calm in what well could have been a stressful situation, skill, intelligence, and a willingness to laugh at himself.  He laughed when I mentioned that anyone can mess up a computer, but it takes a computer engineer to really do it right.  (His degree is in computer engineering.)  Now I like him more than ever.  It’s one thing to see people gracious in the glow of success; it is something else again to see them graceful when things are dicey.
