This past Saturday, we were at the Wetzel’s Pretzels on the corner of 4th Ave. and Washington St. in the Mission District. You had to be there in the predawn hours to get into the store. There were so many people there, they were literally filling the parking lot from one parking spot to the other. So we were there early, before the first of many people arrived.
Wetzels Pretzels is a Pretzels-like chain that doesn’t sell pretzels, but they do sell pretzel-shaped things that can be eaten with pretzels, which is great because that’s something we eat quite a bit. It’s not actually a Pretzels store, but like a Pretzels-like chain, they stock different kinds of pretzels.
The company was founded by Peter Brimelow, a former Microsoft executive and a well-known critic of tech companies. He believes that the current software industry is in dire need of a revival, and that the solution is to introduce an industry-leading, highly-profitable segment of the industry to a new type of industry leader.
The idea is to bring in a much-needed new class of people to the industry, people who don’t have any prior experience and don’t expect to be in it for the long haul. They’ll be given an intense training program to learn not only how to use the software they’ll be working on, but also the culture and business models that are in vogue right now.
Wetzel seems like the right type of person, but I wonder just how much he’ll actually be into the company that hires him to work on the software that is going to become the product of the new industry leader’s dream.
Wetzel seems to me like the type of guy who can’t imagine that he could actually work for a living. He’s like a guy who thinks he is going to be a professional soccer player but who actually spends his time watching professional wrestling, in which he believes he could make a living. He’s a guy who believes that he could have a career.
We find out that Wetzel has an ulterior motive for his job at Wetzel Software. We also find out that he was once a professional soccer player. That is, until he lost his career and decided that playing soccer was a real bad idea. He seems to have lost his ability to be an effective team player, and in doing so, has lost his ability to make the type of money that he once did.
In the end, he’s a guy with a problem. He’s a guy who believes that he can’t be a successful professional wrestler, and has spent the last several years doing this, but then we find out that he’s not really any more successful.
At the end of this interview, the wetzels tells the interviewer that he is no longer a professional soccer player, and that the reason why he is no longer a professional soccer player is because he has been laid off from his job and no longer can afford to pay the players that are on his team.
We all have moments in life when we can’t think of a way we are going to make a good living, or how we are going to afford a quality life. Most of us have those moments in our lives, and our job is to find a way to make those moments better for ourselves, and for our kids. Whether you’re a parent, a child, a teen, or an old man, you have a reason to live the way you do.
