          It’s amazing how our attitude changes as we gain grey whiskers. When we were starting out everything was a major “to do”. Now it’s oh well I was looking for a job when I found this one.

            As far as passing skills & aptitude tests go, I also aced these when I was looking for a job. On some of the interviews, I was told "you are over qualified". That was because once they saw me in person, they realized my age & the cannot discriminate because of an applicants age, thus, "over qualified". I am so glad I'm now retired & can pick & choose what jobs I wish to take. My 3 part time employers realize that as a one man show that some of the jobs they wish me to bid on are out of my abilities because I work for myself & by myself.

              When I was 60 got a chance to scratch one more off the bucket list. Bricked a house by myself all the way around all the way up it was a bungalow but still 20000 brick took one summer after work and weekends. Made more money after work than working. But now I can say I did it. No more side jobs. Someone asks if I can fix there chimney I say starts at $500 never did an estimate yet Perfect

                Precisely why I got out of the restaurant industry. I was a chef for 15 years, started out as a dishwasher and worked my way up to Sous Chef with no formal training. This was all before the Food Network and Rachel Ray. Then the industry started seeing culinary grads beginning their apprenticeships with ZERO real world experience, expecting to be the next Emeril; meanwhile they couldn’t cook their way out of a wet paper sack.

                It soon became apparent that I was a dying breed and was going to have to spend the rest of my career babysitting these f**ks and stroking their egos so they wouldn’t cry to HR. Nope, not for me.

                I fear for the future.

                  Well like u I to got feed up with the apprentices and young journeymen been a red seal for 39 years worked in the trade for 44 years. So after a while it got to be too much so what I would tell them is I’m an open book I’ll tell and show you what ever I can but the minute you start knowing more about this trade than I do I’ll shut up and you’ll never hear another thing from me. Most of them respected that the ones that didn’t lost out. Because most of the old cranky journey men wouldn’t give them the time of day.

                    Yep. Years ago, the culinary culture would place a ton of emphasis on where you've been and how long you've been around, not how many certificates you have in your jacket or where you went to school. I didn't type my first resume until much later in the game - you'd get hired by building a reputation and having respected chefs that would vouch for you.

                    And I remember as a junior, whenever I'd want to learn something or had a question, I'd look for a chef with wrinkles and gray hair....haha. Seems silly now, but to me that was the best way to learn tried-and-true methods by someone who knew their shit.

                        That explains why I won "The Most Gray Award" at my 10th high school reunion at the ripe old age of 27 :rofl:.

                          Good for you Ahoey. Nothing worse than trying to teach some who knows everything. The worst thing that ever showed up was Mike Holmes. I think most guys can't stand that guy. My buddy had his son in his class and he was the biggest dumbass ever. His favorite line was "My Dad says". Dumb as a bag of hammers.

                            I never was one for learning out of a book I was always hands on or asking someone to show me.

                              Agreed books are there for the wtf moments you know Oh there’s a snap ring in there. Or what’s the compressive strength of terra cotta. Hands on way better teacher. Watch fingers and toes use the grey crap between the ears. Don’t know ask. Oh ya take your time and walk away if you’re temperature is rising that can really cost in more ways than one.

                                  I've been wiping my own azz for well over 60 years. I'm a pro at it. But it's not something I'd like to teach hands on. Some things are better learned from a book.

                                  Sorry wiping zzz was a trial and error kind of thing. When my oldest kid was a year to 18 months old he had a cold nose all stuffed up my wife looks a me an says how am I going to teach this kid how to blow his nose. I hit the floor :rofl::rofl:again hands on learning. All of life lessons come from hands on books are just a reference and facts.
