Back at Mudd, I paid $10 or $15 and waited in line for an hour to get a flu shot. Here at Microsoft, I paid $5 and waited for one person in front of me to get their shot. Total time, including getting from my office to the room they were doing the shots: 5 minutes. I guess it makes sense that Microsoft wouldn’t want to waste our time standing in line instead of working, but that was fast.
