Default What do you want to be when you grow up?

Everyone gets asked this question when they are a child. What was your answer? Did you fulfill that dream? Change your mind? Things not work out? Explain.


I wanted to be a fighter pilot in the Air Force. I got lazy along the way and ended up in IT. What about you?

And now that I'm thinking about it... does anyone actually say "I want to be an accountant when I grow up!" ?

I wanted to be a pilot. I did AFROTC in college until I was told that my eyes were too bad to be a pilot, even with surgery. So now I'm fulfilling a degree in MIS.


Oh well.

When I grow up I want to be a fat, disease-riddled programmer, scrambling for a living.

What do I win?

Ideally my dad's new business will grow to the point where I can work for him. Otherwise I'm considering law school or buying an automotive franchise.

Yes, but well worth the work for the kick ass retirement, benefits and union protection. Plus, you need little education to do it. It's actually a relatively easy job to get and, aside from the physical aspects, a pretty easy job, too.

Sharkbait knows quite a bit about the railroad business, because both her folks worked in it.
