35 years old, Bottling Line Operator for a microbrewery making $32,000 a year not counting optional overtime during our busy season. I tried taking classes at a community college (wanted to be a history teacher) and was an honor student...except for math. Gave up after failing Probably & Statistics.
You are very smart. Probably failed because you did not paid much attention to the course title. :beer

Well that explains everything :oops: Been promoted since then making as much as I would have if I'd graduated. What sucks though is that I'm third shift...but everyone is pretty financially sound and older so we have great discussions about our mistakes, teaching our children about money, and hopefully retiring comfortably after working these odd hours. Taking a proper vacation to Florida soon without using credit cards, ready to go brewery hopping and get my farmer's tan on 8-)
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast
