I am a product of the British Public School system from 3 decades ago. I think I am getting better now.
Having tried a couple of different lines of work, I found IT was more fun than working in an accounts office and so have stuck at it.
I work in IT support in a hospital. It is part of the British National Health Service. Not only do I get to do work I like, I also get to support something I feel is the finest thing this country ever invented!
Looking after those who cannot look after themselves, is one of the basic definitions of being civilised.
