gus54 We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control. No dark sarcasms in the classroom. Teachers leave them kids alone. All in all it's just another brick in the wall. Pink Floyd

Mango-Jeepin Bachelors in Business and working on my Masters in Communications and Information Management. Best thing I did was work full time while going to school because everything I learned I immediatly applied to my jobs. But... education is about what you do with it, not what it does FOR you. You should only spend the money if it will support what you want in life. My husband has no college education but tons of LIFE education and has a great job as a carpenter that he loves and is terrific at. I go to him for management advice.

jaresco91 I'm a little young to be posting but what the hell, graduated highschool with a 3.7.
Well...between then and now I've totaled a 99 blazer, a 99 explorer and I blew up a 91 jimmy s15. I go to work every day at American distilling located in east Hampton ct. They produce witch hazel and I work on the bottling line. It sucks, haha I only work 30 hours a week. They don't want to give me full time because of benefits and blah blah. My insure is through the roof because of all of my accidents, I think it's about $2300/6 months plus my jeep payment. But I'm getting by and hopefully ill go back to college eventually for something!

Same here, drinking, fighting, getting high, and girls, had a strong hold on me from about 13-17. I dropped out when I was 16. Took the tests for my GED and passed with flying colors. Worked in the catering business for a little, they paid cash. Cleaned up when I was hired for a serious job which required a commercial drivers license, and random drug testing. Government municipality job, with great benefits, vacation, sick, personal time, and plenty of room for raises and promotion. 12 years later I am an assistant foreman.

Bobinayj Never finished high school. I squandered it on drugs and alcohol. Started working in the restaurant business when I was 14 years old. Stayed in the business mainly because it tolerated my particular wild life style. Cleaned up my act in my mid- twenties. Took an opportunity to open my own restaurant, then another restaurant, then a catering business. I sold them all and retired at 48 years old. Hey, I guess I could go back and finish high school now.... I just need to decide what I want to do when I grow up.

WatchThis! When I walked out of highschool in 98 I never looked back. All my teachers told me that i woudnt be able to make a desent living and I would never be happy if I didnt go to collage. Well here it is 2012 and I'm only working 6 months a year and making over 100k a year. And funny thing is twice I'v had some of those teachers kids working for me. Could I be making more money if i went to collage... maby but I'm damned happy with things the way they turned out.

We do lots of vibration testing; architectural and mechanical etc.
