I told Mom I wouldn’t need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I’ll just hit them out of the park. Then I’ll be able to walk.” (Origin unknown)

I’ll take attitude over skill in the workplace almost without the exception. (One exception might be if I ever need some form of surgery, I would prefer Continue reading
