    Most will say cop, firefighter, president, pro baseball/football/etc., doctor, right?

    Well what do you think an all black inner city 3rd grade class wants to be?
    My dad works with someone whos wife works in a inner city school in Toledo OH. She ask them what they want to be. Every single one said they wanted to work at the gass station. She was surprised and asked them why. They said "so we can still get gov. benifts". :faint:
    And we wonder what is wrong with America.

    EE working in Research.

    I used to go to the College Library and pencil copy reference texts, because I was too young to check them out.

    I wanted to be a medic
    Maybe it was Gage and DeSoto on Emergency! back in the '70's

    I wanted to be a soldier.
    Maybe because we watched a LOT of John Wayne movies at our house, not to mention, my fathers military career.

    I wanted to be a LEO.
    Maybe because I watched Dragnet, The Andy Griffith Show and countless other LE themed shows.

    Luckily, I have been all and am very grateful to live in a nation which allows me to choose my chosen direction in life.

    I would think those youths described by the OP would rather want a rap/sports/dealer lifestyle.

    I was influenced by the media growing up, why not them?

    You beat me to it. 3rd was kind of boring the third time around, wasn't it?

    :tongueout:


    I was born in '59 so EVERYBODY wanted to be an astronaut.

    All I remember wanting to be while growing up was an architect. I'm not sure what happened along the way.

    I'm really going to be depressed if there aren't at least a few posters in this thread saying how much they wanted to be an accountant.

    I wanted to be an astronaut, president of the United States, a geologist, fighter pilot, engineer, inventor and rural delivery man for the post office. I was well on my way to realizing all my aspirations until I was thwarted by one thing: girls.

    Beat me to it. When I was really thinking ahead, probably in 4th grade. Usually I probably wanted to be out of school playing.


    I hate to be the one to break this to you. You probably should take some Zoloft now...

    I wanted to be in the NFL.

    I was really wanting to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, or Dallas Cowboys... I was picky though, I was just too good to play for anybody like the Jets. :rofl:

    This many years later... I followed my dream and made the NFL thing happen for myself. I actually ended up with the Packers the past few seasons.




























    OK actually I took money from my Joe Schmo job and bought an XBOX and play Madden...but the excitement is still there ::supergrin:
