Your Child's Career Choice

As you can imagine, a lot of parents approach LG for advice on steering their children in the right direction career-wise.  Some parents start with the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, and then work their way up to any of a number of complex testing techniques for their children.  Plenty of career counseling services are willing to take thousands of dollars from parents to help them steer their children onto a path that suits their particular personalities. 

Sometimes, however, a child exhibits a passion for a particular job long before any standardized test reveals a specific leaning.  It's LG's learned opinion that the parents of these youngsters should pick up on such clues and nurture and encourage their children in that particular career pursuit. 

LG is sure that Peyton Manning was throwing a football with authority at a young age, Barack Obama was engaging in oratory beyond his years as a child and a young Christine O'Donnell was memorizing episodes of "Bewitched."   

A few days ago, LG encountered a young man who has clearly identified and focused upon his long-term career goals.  If you'll scroll down a bit, you'll see a photo of a child who is clearly determined to be the best darn plumber that he can be when he grows up....

Now here's a boy with some concrete career ass-pirations!


That's all for today folks, a lot of work for one joke, but, hopefully you'll feel it was worth it.  The picture is real, by the way, taken by LG at a YMCA skate park two days ago...  Hope to see you back here soon!

The LG Report appreciates all comments, thanks for taking the time; Karma will probably award you a winning lotter ticket or something. The "or something" being more likely. But thanks again!
