Nothing like doing the bare minimum when it comes to learning about your chosen field of work. Irrisponsible from the get go. Yay

I think you are being a bit ignorant sir. You don't know if he is being irresponsible or not. He might just learn and retain information a heck of a lot quicker than you do. I know I pick things up quicker than my friends. That doesn't make me irresponsible or a "bare minimum" guy. It just makes me smarter than people like you. Why take 10 hours to study for something when you can retain all the information in 2? That seems like an irresponsible waste of time to me, which is probably how you do it... spending more time on something must be the best way to do it right. Oh, and maybe you should spend some hard time studying the dictionary so you can learn how to spell words correctly. It seems rather irresponsible that you didn't take the time to learn how to spell a word like irresponsible when you knew you were going to use it in a sentence. Now that seems rather "bare minimum" if you ask me!

Haha, I was waiting for some smart... remark from someone. But like Woody and Zmax said, maybe I do learn a lot faster than others. And maybe all I wanted the stupid license in the first place for was to JUST spray round up on weeds to avoid the $2000 fine for not being licensed... Maybe you should learn not to be grammatically irresponsible either when you're trying to tell someone off, perhaps you're mad because you failed after studying hours on end, well I'm sorry.

I have a college degree so don't talk to me about bare minimum here...

I don't know if what you did is right or not but if you really did do the absolute
minimum I still don't care because there are days that is all I do and I get away
with it so why shouldn't you, that having been said one can always hope it was
better than that.
