    I am surprised someone hasn't already told you where to put the comma. It's probably just a matter of time.

Finishing law school, I thought it would be a shame to waste all the accounting background, so I went to NYU and got an LLM in Taxation. That's the story...

    Actually, I lived in Northington, but, as the house accountant, I seldom really visited the laundry. I worked downtown at Jamison, Money. The funny thing was that I was so fed up with accounting (not to mention the UA bureaucracy), I went to Northington looking for a counter job. I interviewed with Mrs. Barrett (Col. Barrett's wife, who really ran the place). She told me that countermen were a dime a dozen, but she knew I was a trained accountant and they needed one. I couldn't figure it out for years, since I'd not put down the UA Auditor as a reference, bu there must have been some cross-connection. I had gone out at the Auditor's office with a flourish, leaving behind a ten-page treatise on what was wrong with the financial part of the administration. I found out later that they'd actually printed it up and used it...

    my granddad did a lot of the pick-up business and spent a lot of time on campus. i still remember getting to play in their van as a little kid. he worked there until he was 90 or so (he lived to be 102)

    ah, the joys of leaving with a bang when you know what's really happening.

    Well, as I said way back, I'm not concerned with errors in posts. The only times I correct spelling grammar are in thread titles, because it reflects on the site, whether the TS realizes it or not...

    This is what I tell my students. The first few times they look at me like I've lost my mind, but eventually they catch on and start saying it too.
