    Oh, I laugh. Ruefully. But that's with 15 years of perspective. And now, having just realized that I was in university 15 years ago, I am going to go do something really immature so I can feel less middle aged.

    That's why I added the "High rising terminal emoji"....because there isn't any yet....but is necessary when speaking with younger people.

    University 15 years ago?

    You are just a kid!

    I graduated University while Nixon was still president! Not sure who was Canadian PM.

    Next spring I will hit my 10 year anniversary for getting my BS degree. (That BS sure does add effect) .
    I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

    Even the two year Associates Degree adds effect. It shows completion of a course of study and perseverance and is looked at with respect by employers where "two years of college" means you dropped out.

    The greatest effect I noticed when I got my MA was the automatic 20% pay raise that went with it! The BS let me get my job, the MA made the job worth having.

    80% of the teachers in the U.S. will leave the classroom after 5 years because they do not want to continue their educations. They will try to claim the MA is not worth the $$$ or the effort and that is BS. Most states allow teachers to go to grad school for free or at half tuition.

    Grad school was one of the high points of my life.

    Got an apprenticeship in the HVAC field.......and had just completed my Associate Degree (started in 1968 on and off)....so was able to straight to Journeyman.
    $12 hr on Monday.... to $34 on Tuesday/$39 across the border in Il. ....as my Retirement job.

    Yes the degree does make a difference.

    Earlier on,....did a lot of hiring for a factory.
    Pile of applications
    First sort.... Vets
    Second.... Relatives of employees (directive)
    Third ....HS diploma...
    Forth ... GED.....
    I preferred GED's a bit more than HS diploma,... because it showed effort to return an complete things.....
    Rather than being handed a diploma.
    All others....
    But,
    Had many people that couldn't fill out a application...(sorry folks, no spell check back then).

    Also had many people that couldn't speak English.....but if they got this far (from where ever)....they generally had something on the ball...and didn't want to go back.....

    Thankfully there is a Waffle House beside the Kroger.

    I usually do not shop until forced too by absence of something I really want and I am usually hungry when I walk out the door.

    I stop at the WH before dropping into Kroger. It's cheaper that way.

    My local medication for " I think I ate something wrong"is fresh coconut water...from the young coconuts, not the ripe ones.
    I'm a Gramp who is not computer savvy, give me a slab and the rock ages tablet..I will do fine!

    Same here. Dollar General right down the road. Walmart 15 miles.

    I once heard a comedian describe the Waffle House as being like a rest room that serves pancakes.
