There is no logic in this Mister McCool.

I have a minor problem with #11. It should read " I will not resent the success of others, but only if it was not handed to them due to who they are related to or due to the government's "Equal Opportunity" laws." If they earned it, they will have my respect. Respect is earned, not given.

As far as dirty jobs go, I have worked as a

maintenance man at a fish market (Read paid slave\jack of all trades)
gas pumper, lead pumper, department lead. (have you ever noticed how much money stinks? I have. Not to mention how many folks scratch their junk or azz, pick their nose, etc right before the money is handed to you.)
Dishwasher. (Nothing quite like having soaked hands, dealing with sharp utensils, and picking up dirty dishes that have made contact with peoples mouths, and the germs within.)
Janitor at a college. (don't ask, you really don't want to know )
production at a grinding wheel plant. )Abrasive dust, and 37 known carsinogens in every breath, might as well smoke, it's less dangerous)
Line worker in a condiment plant. (Roaster clean up was so much fun. Especially when a grinding wheel popped, and a chunk git got stuck in my face. or running the mix machine for the peanut butter line. Imagine being diabetic and breathing in the dust off of 2oo pounds of powdered sugar!)

yep. I've worked at some winners over the years, and most of them moved people up by the color of their skin, and who they were related to in management. Hence my problem with #11.

i don't resent another person's success and feel pretty much the same as you do. if they have busted their butt in learnng a vocation and excelled at it, and are making a huge buttload of money, then no i have no resentment at all.

many times, opportunity comes knocking disguised as hard work!

many times, a lot of people want a job, but don't want to work!

Some people win the lottery by birth. I can't resent them. In a way I might pity them a little as they seem to never have the appreciation for the things they might have like the person that busted their ass to get them.
