Today I feel.....

Like I need to go back to school.

I grew up in the time where Pink Floyd was telling everyone that we didn't need an education. Well thats all fine and dandy as long as you what to earn minimum wage working fast food ect.. The list goes on for shit jobs for the uneducated.

I know I've pissed and moaned that I want to move to New Orleans but the fact is I have no education and with out one I'd be fucked. Yes I have a decent union job now with nice benefits. But the era of unions for general laborers is coming to an end. Just recently a local school district decided to not renew the contract of their custodians and out source instead. We just got a new president where I work and he's started cutting back and letting people go and I honestly feel that when our contract is up in 5 years that they will no doubt out source us also. It's sad to see devoted employees that have worked for a company for decades just get thrown out like yesterdays garabage. But at least they have an education.

So I think its time that I get my ass in gear so I can have something to fall back on if and when this job ends. I think I've decided on Hotel Restaraunt management. Its something that is in abundance down in NOLA and everywhere for that matter. Actually I always thought it would be cool to own a bed and breakfast or a diner, so the opportunities are endless.

Sounds like a good plan - education of any sort is always a good thing.

One thing I know, whether it's porn or reflection on your father, or whatever, you write damn well. I'll bet you're a smart one and could do well. go for it, buddy. Knock 'em dead.

Just remember, in management, you can't always tell them to fuck off when you want. Unless you mean it as an invitation!
