Ever get frustrated with the limited number of sick days you get? The solution is right here!
I’m joking of course. It’s never a good idea to have your kid puke on your boss. And unlike in the comic, Urgo is a very understanding guy.
Unfortunately, having kids does mean that I’m sick more often, and while I can usually work through it, it’s difficult to work when I’ve been up all night holding a sick child, then of course, sick myself a day or two later. The joys of parenthood!
One of the best things about working for Social Blade is that our company really is like more of a family. My son really thinks that Dave and Urgo are his uncles. For living on opposite ends of the country, we get together fairly often. Of course we meet up at conventions like Playlist Live and Vidcon, but we’ve also gotten together the past two years on Thanksgiving.
That’s one of the things that is so great with the web and things like YouTube and Google Hangouts; we can really forge great friendships and family with people we would never have met otherwise!
