The Adventures of Yorick the Short

Way back in November, Yorick the Short sought to be respected as a Squire. Technically, he is a Squire’s SPECIALIST, not a full-on Squire. Because of this, he is not as respected for the vast wealth of knowledge he holds. It matters not that he received many certificates in road-making, unicorn-circumcising, and he spent 10 years in the service of the Greater Kingdom as a sea-faring warrior. This lack of respect is partially because he does not have the Bachelor of Science in tomfoolery that is required of official Squires, and partially because his noble is ShaqsDad.
It did not take long for him to find a realm of MoronDour that would take him: in the City of Sin. Word quickly spread that Yorick would be leaving for 6 months by the end of 2009. He was called in to the quarters of ShaqsDad for a private meeting as word kept spreading:
Yorick the Short says:
ShaqsDad: "I just want u to know that the work you are doing is way above a specialist level"
YS says:
me: "ok"
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "I just want u to know don't expect a raise in 6 months though."
YS says:
me: "ok"
Squire Bugiganga says:
wtf
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "and no promotion"
YS says:
me: "ok"
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "until u get a degree"
YS says:
me: "ok"
SB says:
"You're doing a great job, but you're not going to get rewarded for it."
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "but in my mind you aren't a specialist"
YS says:
me: ok
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "just getting paid like one"
YS says:
me: ok
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "i'm aware of your PSPC inquiry."
YS says:
me: "ok"
YS says:
ShaqsDad: "do what's best for u"
YS says:
me: ok...anything else
YS says:
ShaqsDad: no
YS says:
the end
YS says:
like my story?
SB says:
Dude...I think that was the closest to a compliment you'll ever get.
YS says:
yes I think so.
Needless to say, we did not see Yorick the Short for six months, as he took residence in the City of Sin, thanks to the great leadership here in MoronDour.
