Discussion in 'The Bar' started by A Succulent Chinese Meal, Sep 25, 2010.
Let's talk shop. Let's have an old fashioned bull session.
I mostly like talking about myself, so please keep the conversation steered in that direction.
Let's talk about dignity.
Dignity is what you don't have when you are a grade grubber, and this is why I think grade grubbing is bad.
it's impossible to assess your self-worth without a grading system
Did you ever do the Job-O test in school?
Where the heck is Senator Rick? I came here because he asked me to and he is never here. Is he hanging by his neck in his fucking closet? (Baseketball reference, not insult.)
Does anyone even know what a Job-O is? It was a test we had to take as freshmen. It told me I would be most suited to sheet metal work or tile sorting.
no, I don't think we did the Job-O test -- I did one in college -- it said I should be a cleaner for the mob
I wish I took a test like that. I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna be when I grow up.
Now THAT'S a cool job!
No seriously what did it say?
I took one a couple of years ago that said I should be a test pilot. The first test said I was retarded and the second one wanted me to blow myself up in experimental aircraft.
THey made us take it to help us guide ourselves towards a certain diploma in high school.
it said i should be a professor or a lawyer -- i didn't like teaching in college, so i went to law school
kind of a boring story when i lay it all out like that . . .
I used to know someone with your name.
Are you practicing law? I may need to borrow some letterhead....
yes, but you could go to jail for using my letterhead -- I work for the state
That is a really boring story. Is being a lawyer really terrible? A crapload of people I went to high school with went on to become lawyers.
