Okay. I've been working for this "Major Insurance Company" as a consultant for the last month or so. Now, it takes 6 months or more to really learn a system environment. And 2 years to master an OS. So I'm working on an OS that I'm not really a master of, another OS I have never seen, and I'm working with about 60 distinct systems. And I am new the 4th best admin on the team based on basic talent. The top 3 know the systems and I don't. And there is 14 people on the team. I don't know if that's a scary assessment of the quality of people they are hiring through contractors (the throw the bodies at the problem method) or a stunning assessment of my own ability. But remember, I amn a lazy bastard. LAZY! So I think it's cause they hire really ridiculously poor people to throw at the problem. Why is it that giant corporations think that is the solution to their probblems? I should be the worst admin on the team. I'm the newest by months. I don't even know one of the operating systems. I mean Jesus Christ people! Some of these people are lazier than Californians:P. Really! I don't have a good work ethic. So why am I so much better than most of these people?

Lazy Californians
Maybe they imported all those idiots from California.

Are there any openings for someone that wants to be as lazy as you?

Probably. You might have to learn Unix, though. You really should get an LJ account. Even if you never fill it out, it would mean that I wouldn't have to scree your comments:P.

Yes, everyone, I know the hidden commentor. :)
