You victims piss me off!
"never got the chance..." bollocks!
There are always opportunities for further education, even at university level, while you are employed.
I did post-grad computer science studies while employed and while I was conscripted in the South African army. I had to drop one course because it clashed with military exercises but took it again the next year.
When I lived in South Africa I worked with a black guy who really had to grind to get his education. He studied computer science during the apartheid era while living in a tiny dwelling where he lived with his mother. brother, wife and kids. His only study area was the kitchen table which was only available in the evenings after the meal had been made and eaten and the kids had been put to bed. He was working full time, catching a morning bus at around 6 am and getting home at 6.30pm.
If he could make the opportunity then anyone can!
Now tell me you never had the opportunity..... absolute bollocks!
