35. Me too...out to change the world!
Edited on Tue Jan-02-07 05:40 PM by hatredisnotavalue
and then I became an ambulance chaser. Getting a paycheck every week because of other people's misery. I did 15 years of it and then one day a crazy guy murdered three nuns and I had to cover the story. The follow up the next day from my boss was to call the nun's relatives and ask them how they felt about the murders. Gee, pretty shitty would be my first guess. I quit shortly after that. Now I, long story, work for my husband's company, where the Chinese make cheap stuff for American companies and they pass these goods off as their own.
