Failed my last year of University* because I had been playing World of Warcraft too much.
I still lived at home and my parents weren't pleased.
They just sold their IT company to an uncle, an employee and a third that wasn't with the company until he bought it.
My mom said "you're going to find a job or I'll do it for you, you can start there!"
And I said "but I don't even know how to write code!"
And then she gently whispered "THEN YOU'LL F***ING LEARN! Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: "
And so I was hired because I was the son of old management and the nephew of new management and also because I had some affinity with computers, being a gamer and all.
No one in this story regretted that decision.
I liked programming and I learned it very quickly.
I learned a lot, wrote some great software, introduced some new technology to the company, made them a lot of money (earned some myself as well), and then I moved on after four years Big Grin | :-D
Another five or so years later and here I am Big Grin | :-D

*I still finished that last year of University, earning me the title Master of Arts Big Grin | :-D
