My participation trophies tell me so!



I was recently informed that as long as everyone has a can do attitude then they get to make it to the Big Time! Dude claims he made it to executives table, another said chick he knows made it to manager of Wallmart in like 6 months flat.



Just go in with that can do attitude and all the doors open up before you, and everyone gets to be the manager.

Old workplace maxims such as snip rolls down hill, and too many chiefs not enough Indians are OVER!

After all, social media proves everyone gets to be a rockstar!



Computers and machine automation wiping out millions of jobs per year starting pretty much right now? A non-issue! TIME Magazine told me so!

I mean just look at these sports stars numbers and the math is plain as day:


The odds of winning a NCAA sports scholarship are miniscule. Only about 2 percent of high school athletes win sports scholarships every year at NCAA colleges and universities. Yes, the odds are that dismal. For those who do snag one, the average scholarship is less than $11,000. www.cbsnews.com...


So, including the fifty or so underclassmen who leave college and declare themselves eligible for the NFL draft, that's a pool of 3,500 players who could be drafted. Now consider the number of players who were drafted by NFL teams in 2011: 254. In other words, only approximately 7% of eligible players get drafted. www.shmoop.com...


Hell, obviously anybody can become owner of those 32 NFL teams, so clearly anybody can become President of the United States of America, you just need that can do attitude and the skies the limit of how many people get to be a star. Whew. What a relief!

It's getting bad out there. I was leaving the sperm donor clinic the other day and saw them stacking trophies on the counter. Apparently they are going to give them out to everyone now.

I asked if we had to take them, she said yes. Looks like I'm going to need to get an extra trash can dropped off to get rid of all these things.

I've always been told I was special.

They even gave me my own helmet.

And I bet your bus has better air conditioning too. Since it's shorter.

Dammit... I should have accepted that helmet when I had the chance!

Better air, but he also had a seat belt. No thanks, how am I supposed to walk around and drool on the pretty girls if I'm stuck in a seat.

Teacher had a stick she'd poke us with if we didn't use the seatbelts.

That happened to me once, so I poked her back with my stick.

I had to bike to school a lot after that.

So, someone told you something that's obviously not true, or an over-generalization at best?

OK.

Can you clarify whether you are questioning the virtue of determination in thought and deed, or pointing out that, obviously, there are only so many spots in the "Big Time"?

Running around the neighborhood naked with a chainsaw got me onto the bus.


But I got to take a lot of pretty pills.

Well, to be fair, the qualifications seem pretty low for that one at least....
