My pal Bill made an off-handed reference to the IT industry in a comment below.
Well, my now-32 year career in cutting-edge highest-of-tech IT culminated yesterday in me sitting on the floor in a doctor’s office, next to a surly teenager* in a massage chair who didn’t bother disguising his contempt for old people, punching down a Cat6 wall jack. For free.
Lookie here — at least the floor was carpeted and the office was air-conditioned and I was wearing shorts. I wasn’t on a roof nailing shingles or working the business end of a shovel on a highway. Still, you think there might be some residual value in having Seen Most Of It. Nope.
*His mom was at least semi-good looking in that North Dallas bottle-blonde Wonderbra treadmill-butt kind of way. Dallas still churns those out by the thousands. Learn to be thankful for the small things, kids…sassy barmaids, N. Dallas blondies, a fresh can of snuff…they make your denouement bearable.
