Performance Review

A Drexel University student (a zealous baseball fan) once did a 6-month ad agency internship for me  in Chicago. After he went back to school, I received some paperwork from his internship program.

I called a friend, then teaching at Penn, who said I could stay with him. I booked a cheap direct flight to Philadelphia and completed paperwork at my friend’s house.

I contacted the former intern and arranged a meeting place, “Gate 1 of Veteran’s Stadium…”

I arrived in at the Philly airport a few weeks later.

Two days later, I was here:

That stadium was ugly, the Phillies were bad, and it was a hellishly hot day. It wasn’t hard to find privacy. My former intern and I just walked up four rows from where my friend and his kids sat. We went over the review form  and returned a few minutes later.

Certainly employee-performance reviews during the 3rd inning of a Phillies game is one those things that is no longer a thing.

What is the Zoom equivalent?
