Career options

In which we wonder why FP never thought of that


The Mother is always fond of saying: “you know, with your brain and your skills, you could have done so much better for a career! You could have done anything you wanted!”

So, when we heard on the news this morning about the teenager who allegedly made millions from internet crime, I was slightly surprised she didn’t say anything. I was almost expecting: “Why didn’t you do that? You’re just as bright as he is! You could have made millions from botnets and fraud by now if you’d only put your mind to it!”

    Oh, I should have read this before I wrote a short article about it; I could have written a quote like “Forest Pines, from Grimsby, is an equally bright and skilled and is an example of someone who, despite strong family pressure, did choose not to go for a career in cybercrime”.
