WELL DUH!!!

5 02 2012

Read a big article in the local paper today that stated that not everyone needs to attend college or get a college degree.  Well, DUH!!!   I have been saying that for centuries.  That was well known back before the 1960’s crowd came along and decided we all were stupid and didn’t know how to do anything right.  Then, THEY all decided that everyone needed a college degree in order to dig a ditch.  Ever since then, all the education has been changed. Now, before a child knows how to read and write and do arithmetic, he must be geared up to attending college.  After all, this is the absolute end of the world.  And for some, it definitely is.

I went to high school and got a very good education.  That was all that was required back then unless you wanted to be a doctor or lawyer or candle maker or whatever.  Unless you wanted to go into the professions, then you didn’t need a college education.

BUT – and this is a really, really big BUT these days.  You do have to learn how to work.  At something, somewhere, sometime.  There are certain criteria that you must follow in order to be employed.  You must look presentable when you apply for a job.  And you must be willing to work at whatever job it is that you get.  Most young people are anxious to work at about age 16.  That is a good learning time for all young people.  Whether it is at a school or a restaurant or a car wash, everyone needs to get that first job.  And then they must learn how to satisfy the employer with their performance in that job.  Getting fired is a great learning experience.  Because then, you know what it is you have to do the next time in order to keep a job.

Today,most people have never worked.  They go to school and then to college – to get that wonderful degree.  And then, they are under the impression that people will be waiting outside that door just to give them a job.  That is not so.  And it will never be so.  Everyone has to earn that right to have a job.  And you do that with EXPERIENCE.  And you cannot get experience if you have never worked a day in your life.

Most people who complain that they cannot find a job have a false impression of themselves or their job.  A job is just simply that – a job.  It might not be the job you really want in life, but it is a beginning and you must start somewhere.

So, keep in mind that not everyone has to have a college education in order to have a job and draw a reasonable salary.  All you have to do is be presentable and apply yourself in the job.  Then you can make it in this world.  As you learn, you can move on to a better job until you find the one you are suited for.  This is what everyone wants in the world of jobs – a job that is satisfying and pays a decent salary.  What more can you ask for.

And you don’t have to have a college education in order to achieve that.   DUH!!!!
