    Out to dinner with my aunt and uncle in Oakland (rich bitches, bought me a ticket to the Elite Eight games, and offered to take me to Indy for the Final Four if i could get leave - which i can't).

    Uncle asked me if i was planning on making a career out of the military, which seemed to be completely out of left field.

    Aunt went on to tell me that they've been talking about who will take over their telecommunications company when they retire. Uncle said that I've got the tech knowledge, and he can teach me everything I need to know businesswise.

    They said I'd start out low in the company (20 person company or so), so I could learn the entire company in and out. They'd keep promoting me as time went on, until they were ready to retire (both in their late 50's/early 60's). My Aunt then said she'd make sure I was living comfortably the whole time (they drive an X5 and a mercedes, and keep a new BMW in the garage at work "in case of an emergency". Also live in a $2 million house in Los Angeles.)

    Reenlisting is starting to become a fuzzy proposition. I love the military, but I'd also love living back home (los angeles)

    decisions ftw.

    Man, that sounds like a good idea. To take that offer... Not every day you get those offers.

    You know I have 13 years in telecomm between the Army, Worldcom, and the Air Force. I am a very capable tech and would be a great addition to the team. :bigok:

    Yeah I understand, serving is great.. It's different from other things you do, but just note it down as a great fucking memory for life. Then go make some serious bank with the company, and make another great fucking memory for life. :coold:

    reserves. you'll be able to work on the outside and if you decide you didnt like it, you'll always have the option of going active again.
