    Did you follow in the footsteps of your parents when it came to your career?

    I think I kind of did, unintentionally. I didn't like school and just wanted to work so I went to business college and got an Associates Degree in 18 months and then worked in that field. I have been doing Admin work for 20 years now. My Mom worked at Hewlett Packard for over 20 years back in the day. She used to bring me to the office sometimes when she would have to do OT on a Saturday and I would help file, when I was like 12 or something. I liked to help my Mom and she was a very organized person. It rubbed off.

    I did not.

    I'm kinda blind in my left eye so I was unable to become a third generation member of the U.S. Navy like my Grandfather and my pops.

    Shit happens :coffee:

    No.


    Wait...I'm confused. How is someone so lovely as you working at all? I would have assumed that you wouldn't have to, and that your every need is met.

    At least that's how I would handle the situation.

    It's not my fault that you are older than me.
