Dear Sirs/Madams,

I have recently started my first year at high school and would ask for your
valuable assistance in selecting suitable classes that would benefit me in
gaining a career in the esteemed (and lucrative) profession of accounting.

Please don't tell me that I should do maths, it is mandatory, I despise it
and I can't see the point of half of what they teach us!!

I have a choice of three electives:

Roadcraft - We are taught to maintain and ride motorcycles
Metalwork - duh, we work with metal
Home ec - Cooking, cleaning and needlework.

Which of the above three would best suit an aspiring accountant -
personally I think roadcraft because I will have to get to the office
somehow.

I await your sage council!

Yours,

Dwayne.

Dear Dwayne:

Being a career consultant, I have analyzed your missive and have come to the
conclusion that you show a decided aptitude to be a circus contortionist.
Are there any courses in your high school that teach that discipline?

If not, you could practice on your own at home. The best exercise you can do
is to bend over and kiss your own ass. That way, no one will be in the
embarrassing position of having to do it for you.

Hope that helps.

Dwayne, accountants are macho enough without the bike riding image. I
strongly suggest cooking and sewing. It's about time we projected a caring,
more compassionate and understanding image - introducing the Metrosexual
accountant!

Being that Wee is a journeyman machinist, Wee would go with Metalworking
Which of the above three would best suit an aspiring accountant -

Metalworking places an emphasis on the use of numbers, this may be
beneficial for an accountant though this may not necessarily be the case...

Another good point is the fact that since placing my resumé on Mönster
after receiving a BS in Management, Wee hath had 63 hits on the thang - 75%
for machining jobs (which Wee doesn't want to do for he is now highly
educated and is currently doing it anyhoo), and 25% to sell insurance
(which Wee doesn't want to do 'coz insurance agents are creepy). The point
is that this may be a career aside that is always in need of labour, and it
is a noble trade...
I await your sage council!
Await no longer, My Son...
Yours,

Dwayne.
Carry on...

Any of the three would suit your goals well, my friend. You've already
demonstrated your most relevant quality in that you >despise [math] and...can't
see the point of half of what they teach us!!<

Definitely a quality lacking in most accountants. You will undoubtedly stand
out in the profession.
