Life choices

Today, after I used to look down on my brother for being a nerd, he now creates computer software for a living making megabucks. Meanwhile, I deliver lorry loads of gravel and cement to building sites for minimum wage, one step above breaking rocks for a living. FML

don't beat yourself up too much, I get the outlook. when you work blue collar heavy labour for less than you are worth, getting injured regularly, it is easy to see "nerds" doing tech work making lots of money as lazy or overvalued... until you actually see what they do and the stress it creates, along with injuries and long term issues (back, eyes, wrists etc). I work in a wood shop, but also spend lots of time on my PC and helping with tech at work. apologize to him and you should both move on better than yesterday.

And you have a hot girlfriend from Canada. You think she's hot, but her camera is broken and you've never actually seen a photo of her.

So, he took the digital superhighway, while you chose the rocky road. At least you have an ice cream named for your way.

I was a nerd in high school. It is funny how life reverses itself. I travel the world and own multiple houses most the jocks and bullies from my childhood have never even left my hometown or own their own house lmao

Sure buddy

Karmas a bitch innit?

Nerds run the world now. That's our revenge.

Nerds and geeks always rule the world!

Sounds like karma hit you like a freight train, lol
