the microfiber reflecting the macrocosm.

So my experience of working at Microsoft can be summed up by the jacket I just tossed on to run to the corner store, which was given to me free at the office.
Summary? An ill-fitting jacket, made of crummy material, inappropriate to any vagaries of local climate: either too warm, or not warm enough. Also, it makes a hell of a lot of noise when you swing your arms, like corduroy pants when you walk with your legs close together.
Additionally, it's a color where if you don't have ancestors who said 'Roight, William the Conqueror, feck off', it looks horrible on you.

I do have nice gimmies from Microsoft, but there're only a very few of them: a lightweight windbreaker, and a nice logoed shoulderbag. This coat and the other crappy gimmies are going to Goodwill soon: someone may want an MSN Passport T-shirt: I, myself, do not.
