Re: goin back 2 skewl (OT)
My G.I. bill was worth exactly.......... Nothing.
When I wanted to go to school after the military, the wanted to send me to some third rate school operated for welfare people, ceta or something like that.
(I worked my way through trade school by porting heads and installing covert nitrous systems...)
When I needed surgery to take out the last two fragments of a bullet, the VA wanted me to go to a doctor that couldn't speak one word of english, and refused to wash his hands between patents.
(My insurance paid on a 20/80 split, after the first $5,000, and $3,000 to the lawyer to get them paying. They considered it 'Elective Surgery'...)
They consider me 70% disabled, but I've never gone after any money.
All that 70% ever did for me was screw up one job application after another....
I guess that's why I decided to run my own business.... Glad that turned out, or I'd be screwed!
I'm going to have back surgery sometime after the first of the year, but I'm doing it all privately, and I called the lawyer instead of the insurance company this time!!!
She says that I'm covered after the first $1,500 this time, and I have disability and recovery time pay coming while I heal.
I'm looking into an electronics course at the local Jr. college during my recovery.
If I have time, and I'm up to it, I'm going to do a welding course too.
I've always wanted to learn to weld correctly!
I wonder if a gray headed fat guy in a back brace can attract coeds? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
