Hi Mr Doc... Trumph is a dick head
Hey there...

I was very upset about last nights episode... it kinda hit me personally, although it's just tv in reality, i found myself relatin to troy in many ways and although he may not have had the formal qualification he was da frikken man!

I can easliy see why Trumph goes up and down from rags to riches ... he makes brilliant and idiotic choices all at once leavin a perfect balance for absolute growth and retreat... guys like him would never b able to crack it from scratch... he could have learnt a thing or 2 from Troy

The relation goes like so..

Troy came from no where... I came from a wheel chair... Troy has no education and neither do I, he was a natural leader and could read people easily, he had talent in closin deals and makin cash a reality to however ... he was gracious in loosin and was optimistic about the future... but he was seen as a looser, because he didn't have a harvard education, wasn't molded into a set way of thinkin... fluck that doc... free thinkin is what moulds our universe…

Anyway it was bullshlit and in some ways the straw that broke the camels back… u see doc… I am like that dude troy today… but tomorrow I won’t b like him because of society, I have been thinking bout doing a degree for the past few years but am now going to enroll… because when tomorrow comes I will b a bit more than troy is but only on paper so that this mad society will actually listen to what I have to say… thing is I plugged math at school, and its weird because my numbers skills r unmatched… I didn’t do the formulas and learn maths and could not begin to tell u why… only that I don’t want to go through 4 years when I can easily do something in less time… I need some help there doc… unisa has a shyte site and I just need someone there to give me abreak instead of looking at my papers… maybe check out that I have started businesses, worked my ass off and provided a service of an internation standard… no doc that doesn’t happen, what happens is … please tell me bout ur qualifications FULL FLUCKIN STOP…

Am sad mad and angry again and again… judging people on paper is so fluckin lame… why don’t they find another way to segregate … how bout merit how bout what u did before… where u came from before u walk through the door…

Hi Dude,
I agree, I would probably pick Troy, to work for any company I ran, with maybe Kwame as his number two ( but not to be in charge ). Troy showed more sheer sense and skill than any of them. Trump is a massive snob, and not good in the personel decisions we saw him make.
Your degree plans sound excellent --- yes, I find university education is useful, mostly for what one learns between the curriculum, rather than in it --- and because it then makes it more likely that people will listen to the good sense you already had before you went there !
As you know, most of our regular readers are away on holiday at present, but there are many who are succcessful UNISA students and should be able to advise you about that process.
In years gone by, I wrote many times about how lousy university entrance selection processes are. There should be some way round this, and to get them to pay attention to who you are, and what you have done, not only what's on paper.
And notice how gracefully Troy handled being fired ? Also, of the whole bunch, it was Troy other folks hired to host the Miss World pageant in China this year, so you're not the only one who thought he was pretty darn good !
