    Many many years ago I interviewed for a job in a non profit in Washington, D.C. My prospective boss asked me to go out to lunch and my choices were the expensive restaurant next door or a cafeteria at NEA. I chose the former.

    Yes I got the job, but I later found out I almost didn’t because I had stupidly forgotten this was a NONPROFIT with a limited budget and I should have been more sensitive to this.
