Warren Kinsella and Transferable Skills

As a former employment councilor I am a proponent of skills transferability. That is to say, transferring the skills one learns in a particular job to another, often divergent position.

A lowly paperboy who learns the value of accounting and the rewards associated with consistency can use fiscal prudence and personal perseverance all his life. The greenest roughneck can learn the importance of organization and the pride of professionalism, skills that are in demand always.

That is why I was pleased to see this missive from Warren Kinsella.

Warren wittingly wonders about the impact of urinal advertising by the Government of Canada. The pithy part involves "tools".

Not only does this display a keen sense of bathroom diligence it marks a synthesis of skills.

Warren appears to have combined bathroom monitor with restaurant critic to define his own niche.

Bathroom Advertising Critic.

Now if that isn't skills transfer nothing is.

I like having something to read when I'm rocking a piss.
