You're not qualified to do nothing

We had our "Winter Celebration" lunch at work yesterday which was really our Christmas lunch that had to be rescheduled due to the 14 feet of snow that Seattle got in December. There was a conversation about who had seen the founder of the company at what conference and Murray started talking about this interesting guy he'd run into who apparently runs an ED in the UK, but has a lot of minions and does a whole lot of nothing all day. Eric started riffing on wanting that job and I just pointed out that he's not qualified to do nothing on the principle that you have to have done SOMETHING for a long time to eventually work yourself out of a job at a high salary. Or, you just have to be really lucky. Eric? Not so much, dude.
