Next President of the United Fates of America
Was on a job at the INL years ago, and there was a group of 'Temporary' laborers on that job as well.
They'd been told that out of the eight of them only two positions would be filled 'Permanent'.
One of the youngest kids was sitting with our group of Pipefitters saying how all of them were just jumping thru hoops trying to look good for the full time positions, and asked if we could suggest anything that might put him over the top.
I made strong eye contact with him and told him
"After you have done 'all' that you can possibly do......take credit for what others do. That will put you over the top right away. That'll impress 'em!"
His eyes got big and his jaw almost dropped on the table.... It was a 'Kill'.
One of the other 'Fitters chimed in "Oh yeah! How do you think we all got to the position to make the pay we do?"
His eye searched the whole group from man to man looking for a smile, or anything at all to give us away. To their credit, not a man cracked. Grim, stony stares for about ten seconds of pregnant silence. Then the house came down!

That was his lesson on cheating!
So, the words Autumn and Fall are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world!

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there a thing of which it is said, "See, this is new?"It has been already, in the ages before us. Ecc 1: 9-10
