Damn you, guidance counselor!
Often they say, “Bobby, are there any signs I can look for that might indicate I’ve chosen the wrong career?”
Sure, there are quite a few, and you’d be smart to read my past CAREERS posts. But here are a couple of new thoughts:
- If you’re moving at a high rate of speed and there’s a huge fuming bull chasing you, and you’re not drunk and you’re not in Pamplona, then your career counselor owes you or your widow an apology.
- If the ground is moving under you and you seem to be hanging onto a big sharp horn, and you can feel hot nostril snorts on your leg and there’s a hole in the butt of your fancy purple jammies, maybe you should have thought twice before majoring in Creative Writing and Film Studies.
