You are showing a real lack of class. No, I am not mad. I am too old for that nonsense. You say you are in the middle of the totum pole at your job and you are making a lot of money. That is fine, but take the advice of someone 40 years older than you who has lived through a lot of experiences and get an education. I'm not poking fun, I am serious. You are young enough. Get an education and you will move to the top of the totum pole, and make even more money to boot. I have never had to apologize for being an educated man, and the doors were never closed to me as a result.
Oh and btw. The only issue I have is grammar. I was actually a very good student in school. I actually have a high level of interagenc. And am very mechanically inclined. I got all of my required credits out the way my freshman and softmore year. Clearing my junior and senior year up for vocational school. I took aviation tech, auto electrical, engine repair, engine performance 1&2, and auto body repair. I was president of my class in vocational school and graduated top in my class. At this time I was also a vol fire fighter. And still have all of my first responder classes up to date. I gained a full paid scholarship to NTI (NASCAR Technical Institute). I decided to turn it down to be a full time fire fighter. I took my CPAT and my exam to be a firefighter. Sadly my local city department went on a hiring freeze. I started as a deckhand on a crew boat working off shore. Moved up to unlicensed engineer in 4 months. I then got my QMED. Then I decided to go a different rout. I am currently a AB unlimited. Once I have the sea time I will be getting my 1,600 ton mate license. Then after a year of that I will be 1,600 ton master caption. I thank I have done good to only be 22. And I will have my master license by the time I am 26. If all fails and I lose my job for some reason it is straight into the USMC with no hesitation.
