Don't You Just Wanna QUIT and Go Sailin' ?

Of course you've probably read by now, but its so hard to not want to just say "I QUIT!" and just GO!

Remember that old Johny Paycheck song, "Take this job and shove it."

Sorry Salty…. Don’t want any quitters (like that) on my boat……

While the airline story is cute…. people who blame the “establishment” or whatever for their unhappiness and a reason to ignore real-time professional responsibilities ….are nothing more than a problem waiting for an excuse.

Recommend he focuses on becoming a bartender so that he can commensurate with all the other professional quitters.
