“How was work today dear?”
I PUT A FLURO TUBE IN THE MICROWAVE… NEED I SAY MORE?

Job interview: “What unique skills can you bring to our company?”
I PUT A FLURO TUBE IN THE MICROWAVE… NEED I SAY MORE?

> Lastly a great quote, too long for a seperate sound advice:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Calvin Coolidge
