Mining coal must have been in the Appalachians or on the "other side of the pond." My job was to go to DMV in place of my boss's customers every day after school, and stand in line to process their paperwork . . . . so now bureaucrats don't scare me all that easily.
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.
