I'm 38 and I'm taking my driving test for the first time tomorrow. Wish me luck! 🚗


The examiner on my test was an older guy who's a former Cobol engineer. I told him that there was a shortage of people who knew Cobol and that some banks paid for up to 1000 gbp a day (!!!) for maintenance work on legacy systems.

He was amazed by the number, but said that he liked his life now, being able to spend time with family and do his hobbies.

I feel you, man.
