    That was way too long and not overly good.

    This would have been better at 20 things, but a lot did apply to me.

    My friends said the same thing until I got an internship this summer that pays $25/hr, pays for my apartment in downtown Minneapolis, and gave me $500 moving expenses. Plus paid holidays and 3 days of paid vacation. Did I mention I was only a sophomore (upcoming junior) with under a 3.0? ***** please.

    My engineering friends? Only one of them got an internship that wasn't a lab on campus. His pays $17/hr and that's it.

    It is a sad fact of a lot of engineers personalities that everyone that is not an engineer is below them.

    Re: For those who are getting or who have a degree in engineering

    This just came up and is only tangentially related. I work with a woman who has a bachelor's degree in EE, a masters in Comp E, started working towards a PhD then moved and decided to get a law degree. She did, then passed the bar on her first try.

    I just emailed a group of people to find out if they had Acrobat on their computer because if they don't, they're going to need it. She replied and said she doesn't know what software would allow her to edit PDF documents but if she could get whatever software that is that it would be very helpful.

    She also addressed me as Scott, which is odd because that isn't my name. And my name is in my signature and quite clear as the sender in Outlook.

    Now as I type this, she let me know she mistyped my name but is still interested in hearing more about "Acrobat". She put quotes around Acrobat.

    Me thinks she O'Leary'd someone. No way that resume is legit.

    Oh, one other time she emailed me and was confused by the fact that all of the names in her "From" view in Outlook had her name on them and she couldn't figure out who actually sent the emails. After 10 minutes of listening to her tell me how Outlook was broken and she needed someone to come fix it, I finally figured out she was viewing her Sent mail instead of her Inbox.

    Sometimes I enjoy her emails, sometimes I want to pull out what little hair I have left.

    a case of book sense but no common sense? There was a lady like that at our church a few years back. She was a psychologist or something with letters behind her name, but you couldn't carry on a normal conversation with her - she had absolutely no common sense.
