    I got a text from the new guy yesterday asking if I was busy.

    Let me first start by saying I hate when people ask if i'm busy or awake. Typically I'm both. I'm a lead and am always open for a technical question. I will hang up if you just want to BS, but if it is a ligit question, I have time.
