Seriously? A senior manager for McDonalds. I worked for them before I joined up and had been promoted twice in the first four months; I took a pay-cut when I joined the army and didn't pass my MaccyD's wage until I was on trade pay 14 months later. There were 147 stores then, there are 1200 now. They promote from within and I did, as they say, get in at the bottom floor.
devexwarrior - believe me after 13 years of wimbledon you meant solid! For every sharipova there's two dozen mauresmo's!
Me - copper, only joined cos I was too old for police cadets and too young to join. Thought I'd do 3 in the army to stand me in good stead for the force. Started having a laugh on day one and haven't stopped 16 years down the line!
