    Let your watchword be duty, and know no other talisman of success than labor. Let honor be your guiding star in your dealing with your superiors, with your fellows, with all. Be as true to a trust reposed as the needle to the pole. Stand by the right even to the sacrifice of life itself, and learn that death is preferable to dishonor. ~ Gov. Richard Coke, October 4, 1876

      Still got friends that the only worry in the world they have is what they are going to do this upcoming weekend.

      Many of them are in grad school by now going to parties, enjoying life, and stressing over essays while im humping calls, taking bs from the public, and trying to finish my freaking bachelors because i felt compelled to apply early before i finished school.

      Im sure later in life, everything will even out, but early 20's are the prime time "fun" years, or so they say. I really dont think they should be spent doing the job and babysitting society.

      Still, i love this job, and i got no regrets, but i would just like to warn the others.

      Thought this was interesting - any particular reason why you wish you had started later?

            I was 25 when I was hired. A lot of retiring age guys were telling me how it's a great age. I was old enough that I didn't look like a kid and wasn't going nuts over any newfound abilities (like getting into bars.) Still old enough to bounce at 46-51 years old. My father is still skiing at 56, so it seems good to me.

                Went to work at the Louisiana Dept. of Corrections (Angola) at the ripe old age of 19. Had just turned 28 when I went LEO.

                  36 ....after 6 years Military and 12 years as a network engineer. I'm glad, too because I learned a lot in those years. Especially my military time.

                            32, now 37. And in better shape than at 30, but not as good as 33!
                            If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

                              I was hired at 22 yoa, now I'm 25, and I could retire at 42 yoa and double dip, but i'll probably do 25 if not 30 years because of how much I enjoy the job.
                              Thanks for the help !

                                I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.
