Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

Goggle social workers, counselors and education, who often have advanced degrees...then get back to us on your findings.

LOL, that's exactly what I said.  You claimed to know more than one person with several terminal degrees.  I'm glad you *now* see your mistake and admit there are few such people.  My description of such loonies still stands.

Can you please explain how you can graduate from the  Wharton School without living in Pennsylvania?  Thanks.

Same for social work, I don't know anyone who goes into that profession thinking that it's well paid.  They do a wonderful service, but are clearly underpaid.

Wow, that low huh?  The credit cards and lines of credit charged back up?  Cry

<<My cousin graduated from Harvard so let's not mock the prestige and where it led her.  :-)  But I have a teacher friend whose undergraduate degree (it might be graduate) is from Cornell U, I suppose she could have gone on to do bigger and better things with her degree but there is truth in teachers that follow their passions not dollar signs. >>

So how do you reconcile that with your earlier statement of most people are paid what they are worth?

Of course COL has something to do with it.

You didn't read sav's comments correctly the first time.

No, I claimed to know multiple people that have a terminal degree.  In fact, hundreds.

I didn't say, in any way shape or from, that I went to Wharton.

Child support isn't income and rarely covers the cost of the expenses of the child.

1. I never said you couldn't find mine. 

Yep, if you know the website on which to find it.  

Because I don't believe you know what it is. And that's the only way you can prove it.

I'm not trying to compare them.  I"m trying to prove you don't know what my salary is. 

Anyone can see it ... if they know where to look and who to look up

Your perseverance here is just furthering my belief that you have no idea what my salary is. 

Yes, my salary is public. Which does not mean that you know what it is.

But alas, you can't prove you know my salary - because you dont' know my salary. It's pretty simple really.
