I first demonstrated this technique, and subsequently perfected it, at the airport luggage carousel, back when you could smoke in an airport. Get to the carousel, light a fag, and my case would always be first out. A win, all for the price of a fag, which would have been duty-free anyway.
Of course, this might have been because my employer graciously paid for me to fly first class.
Lighting a fag in the US is considered a hate crime.

Not sure I can cope with that again: it took three physical deliveries to get one that worked on arrival last time. Couriers don't like heavy stuff, and generally drop it, a lot.
UPS are the worst, in my experience - I've yet to have a single package delivered by them in a condition which didn't mean full photographic documentation while opening. It seems that you desperately need decoy outer packaging for them to use as a football / ladder / chair while the inner packaging remains relatively intact*. Festooning packages with "FRAGILE" tape is obviously just seen as a challenge ...
* It's the "crumple zone" technique for parcels.

In my observation, over the years school has been deliberately made more fun.
Don't worry too much about learning unpleasant things - and watch some movies - every week - and learn from them . . .
The kids are happy because, more and more it's becoming a hang-out with buddies and less and less a place where you need to be quite and learn things you will need some day even though it doesn't seem like it now and you really don't want to.
When I worked in a small company the management knew what I was working on, so no problem, Bigger company sent an Email with details, Bigger company we start using the JD Edwards award winning software. I want to know if had any rivals for the awards, if they weren't as good... I know nothing about time sheet software but I could write a better interface, enter something wrong and bang (bounds checking? that would be a no!). The back end appears to written by someone who knows enough about Oracle to know if you port an SQL database to Oracle you don't have to Micro$oft...give me a break!
