...but doesn't helping people that make 10 cents an hour screw us?

Especially when you know they have no clue

Sorry if this is too right wing

How many people have we saved to keep their positions?
How many people have we helped passed tests, exams etc?

WHAT IF SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ONE DAY BECOME YOUR BOSS?

Not Likely

I don't mean this to be mean, and I'm all for being helpful, but I've dealt with a lot of arrogant consultants, who have their opinion, and have no idea...plus we give them they keys to the kingdom

I meant in general, not just your boss Brett

Some of the people we help here do not even know how to use the keys. If they at all realize that they are keys.

i used to know a keyboard player some years back. always got a fantastic sound from his yamaha electric baby grand and had somehow solved the problem of the continuous 'earth buzz' that they all seemed to have.

if anyone ever asked him how he got that sound he used to tell them..."if i tell you, then you'll know as much as me. why would i do i that?"

Well I guess the answer to that would be more competition which would make you better on a level playing field....

I used to know someone who used to tell me that he was going to learn as much about IT as I did at the time. My first reaction was to think - well I did it, why can't he? Then I realised that I was five years ahead of him. So in the five years it took him to catch me, I would be another five years ahead

Hopefully all the effort you put in here X002548 helps to properly train your future subordinates. And if all else fails. Hopefully they will return the favor.
