Pegasus CEO Matthew Tucker Interviews John Buglio

In this part of our Meet the Team series, where we get to know the staff of Pegasus Technologies better, CEO Matthew Tucker Interviews Systems Administrator John Buglio. Below is the transcription from this interview.

Matthew Tucker: Welcome everyone to another edition of Meet the employee with the CEO, and today we have John. John, it seems like you have been here for a hundred years, but what is the exact timeline now that you have been working?

John Buglio: Well, May I believe, end of May, and probably like nine years.

Matthew: Yeah almost at the ten-year mark.

John: Yeah.

Matthew: I see. That has been great having you and really appreciate the loyalty and dedication and hard work. So without any delay, we are going to get into the fun part, which is the question. So, good luck. As I have mentioned to you here, I have not even read them and they were provided to me as usual, so we are going to learn them together.

John: All right.

Matthew: Yeah, number one. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

John: There are so many I could do. I guess, I kind of like Wolverine with the healing factor, and well the claws, but you know, that would be kind of cool.

Matthew: Claws are a nice add-on. [chuckles]

John: With the healing partly, probably nice, get hurt or something happens, you know.

Matthew: Yep, good.

John: Good, good. I like that.

Matthew: If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

John: Want to go with the cliche, the Italian. I would go with Stromboli.

Matthew: Stromboli.

John: Stromboli, cheesedick, yeah.

Matthew: Yeah, good. We have been down to Rehoboth Beach.

John: Yeah.

Matthew: A place there called Nicoboli’s, they make this, it is not even a stromboli. It is a Nicola’s, that is what it is, But it is a Nicoboli, and it is basically like a gigantic hot pocket. It is the greatest thing in the whole world. And he just put all your different ingredients into it. It is good.

John: I see.

Matthew: All right. Do you think iced-coffee should only be consumed in the summer or year-round?

John: I would feel year-round. I am a coffee addict, so I have no, I could do it in a-hundred-degree weather, it does not matter. I can drink it. Well, cold-coffee.

Matthew: Right, both of them. Right? Hot and cold.

John: Yeah.

Matthew: When making peanut butter and jelly sandwich, do you put the peanut butter on first or the jelly?

John: I am kind of weird about it. I am not sure everybody does it this way. I put on the one piece of bread, the peanut butter first, and then on the other side of the bread will be the jelly.

Matthew: And then you smack on the other?

John: That would be how, exactly.

Matthew: That is good. When I grew up my mom used to put butter on it as well.

John: Yeah, and then that is it.

Matthew: It was good. But you know at forty-nine years of age, it is probably not recommended so–[laughs]

John: I’m with you there.

Matthew: If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose and you can not choose Wolverine? It has already been taken.

John: [laughs] All right, I will probably go with Batman. I like Batman, yeah.

Matthew: Which would you rather do? wash dishes? mow the lawn? clean the bathroom? or vacuum the house?

John: Mow the lawn.

Matthew: Mow the lawn, yeah. I am with you on that one.

John: Okay.

Matthew: What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

John: So technically, I would probably do maybe building a computer from scratch. You know, how to design, you know, configurations and so forth, installing Windows, that kind of stuff. If you know I can get technical, then the second option would be, maybe I mean, I am comic-books-freak. So, you know, we could discuss comic books, the history of it, and all that kind of stuff.

Matthew: Great. If we drag this out for another 35-minutes, we actually could have a 40-minute presentation with no preparation. [laughs]

John: Right.

Matthew: What amazing thing did you do that no one was around to see?

John: That is a good one now.

Matthew: That is assuming that we have done something amazing.

John: Well, I guess yeah. Well, I mean I am not, I never say they always like that kind of stuff. I mean, well I bought my house about nine years ago. I had done some molding work in my dining room. Yeah, like the chair, I am molding it against the wall and there were the chairs, go back into the wall itself. So I mean I have never done it before, I have got a saw, angled everything properly. And it came out, you know, fairly decent. I mean it is not a, you know, carpenter work, but you know for their level, but I think you know–

Matthew: Thanks, it would be a handiwork. Great. If you were a dictator of a small island nation, what crazy dictator stuff would you do? [laughs]

John: [laughs] All right, be the dictator. All right.

Matthew: Remember the whole world is going to watch this. [laughs]

John: Yeah, I know. I am going to be clean. I am not going to, I do not wanna be a cruel dictator. I could be, I always like to feel, treat people as you would treat yourself kind of mentality.

Matthew: All right.

John: I do not know. Maybe once a month throw like an appreciation festival or something for the people, you know for contributing to the society. I do not, I guess. I mean this is the kind of you know, show the appreciation. They do not have an uprising and avenge me.

Matthew: Yeah. [laughs] It would be a short-lived dictatorship. [laughs]

John: [laughs] Yeah. Like one term.

Matthew: All right, all right [laughs]. Last one here, John. What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with, but you just do not get the point?

John: [murmurs] A couple of different things here. And that is a– [exhales] I guess I would say the lives of people in Hollywood. Just their everyday life, and who is dating who, or who is divorcing who. I am just out of it. I do not care. I like watching movies but other than that, your personal life is your personal life, just–

Matthew: Right, great. They are actors and actresses. There is supposed to be an actor, I guess–

John: We are not, we are not you know, [inaudible] me besides entertaining but–

Matthew: It is right, it is their job, entertain us. [laughs]

John: Exactly, so yeah.

Matthew: All right. Well, John, thanks for the peek inside of your mind there, just scrambling mess, but that is what this game is all about. So, I appreciate it, and more importantly, is like I said from the start, I appreciate your time here, and the dedication here, and look forward to the many years to see you here in the future. So we will wrap around in another ten, and do this again, and a whole new set of questions.

John: [chuckles] All right, man. Appreciate it.

Matthew: All right. Thanks, John. Have a great day.

John: Take Care.

Matthew: Okay.
