a good one going here!!! ;-), I'll volunteer!!!
I already pointed out that I've no 3rd level...
I did at one point do a CATT Computer passport course, but I failed the
accountancy paper and couldn't be arsed repeating it !!! ;-)
I didn't even qualify for to get in to a regular college, as my Leaving
cert was 5 subjects barely passed...

Years ago, I thought it made a difference... But then a college asked me
to come and work for them (My Ego nearly hit the roof! ;-) and I
realised if it didn't matter to them, who cares??? The funniest part of
that is, the head of department where I worked was worried I wasn't
being paid enough, so he offered to organise an evening lecturer post
for me in another Well-known college!!! ;-)
I didn't take him up on it, as I thought it wouldn't be fair on the
people who were paying for that course, to be thought by someone who
wasn't even qualified to attend it!!! ;-)
