    Growing up I worked with the old man building kitchens. Went to college since i didn't want to build kitchens. Got a diploma in computer systems technology and didn't get one bite from all the resume's i put out. One guy in my class quit after a day and a half at the local Sharp dealer and told me about it. I called them up that afternoon. They were confused on how i knew about the job but gave me a shot at it.

    That was 5 years ago.

But I love all machines and electronics and I do enjoy this.

    Are you TOM HANKS and did you appear in the film BIG?

    I was a fish baiter on a fishing boat for a few years. I got so good at it, that I was promoted to Master Baiter.

    We once had a Copier Guy who literally became a Copier Girl (sex change operation).

    Needless to say, he/she wasn't kept in the same territory after the "transition" - would have made for some very befuddled customers.

    Be careful in teaching your children it is acceptable to abort an inconvenient unplanned pregnancy because they may also determine it is acceptable to euthanize an inconvenient elderly parent.

    Went from Corporate Services Co-ordinator for an investment bank (pretty much I supervised the copy centre, telephone operators, receptionists and Report Library) to being a Copier Guy.
    The main thing that cinched it was I knew how to use a computer and I had fought enough with the analogue monsters in the Copy Centre that I had some idea what I was doing.
