Re: list problems?
no way... The option where you come out into "life" 35k in the hole, no experience, and four years behind your "collegues" is obviously better. And its hard to put a value on.. that bitterness you learned from spending the "best years of your life" with a bunch of rich, drunken dumbasses. The tolerence you gained from all those times your learning was decelerated, just to allow for johnny football star to meet status quo. The anger from seeing Johnny pull his head of his jock just long enough to see daddy hand him a 150k VP position. As mastercard sais.. priceless. And no, I'm not bitter.. -- Shawn Solomon Senior State Networks Engineer Indiana Telecommunications Network & IHETS INDnet 317.263.8875 www.ind.net fx: 317.263.8831 On 22 May 2002, Paul Vixie wrote: > > firstname.lastname@example.org (Leo Bicknell) writes: > > > If you ever want to become a team leader, or a manger, or run a > > theoretical group you are going to need the math and English > > backgrounds that college provides. ... > > So what you're saying is, if I hadn't dropped out of high school during > my 17th trip around Sol, I wouldn't've gotten stuck in this dead end job? > > Probably I wouldn't have that honorary MSCS degree either.
