"You can do that in any other situation too. People, time, place, situation, stuff. It's just life. No need to pay a school for their brand of it." - FCorelli


It's a different kind of people. Academic scholarly people. People who read books. People with PhD's, people working on Master's degrees.

I used to be a Meat Cutter with Winn Dixie in Florida and Atlanta, Georgia. Those were a rough bunch of people. Way different than the college professors I worked around during work study.

I don't want to be derogatory but the people I worked around in blue collar jobs were not concerned with higher thought. They were concerned about smoking, drinking, and going to bars and picking up horny divorced women.

I was not into drinking alcohol and did not hang out with the crowd in college that consumed alcohol. In fact my first roommate was a drunk and after my first quarter in college I very quickly got a new roommate.
