    What is COS?

    Do you really plan to wander for a YEAR before returning to MN??

    COS = “Close of Service”, i.e. the date when mcmcdonald’s services are no longer required by the PC.

    Like every other government-run organization throughout history, the PC has developed an intentionally impenetrable array of abbreviations and other bits of jargon; like in most such organizations, this is carefully calculated to generate a sense of exclusive (rather than inclusive) comraderie and esprit d’corps, and to bond everyone together.

    It’s undoubtedly effective, but it makes use of some fairly dirty psychological tricks, and (intentionally) fosters a potentially dangerous “us vs. them” mentality which can be – and frequently is – dehumanizing.

    That, I need hardly point out, is not how the PC sees the matter. πŸ™‚

    and all along i thougt it was just an easy way to remember things..WTF? ROFL!
    yea, tis close of service and it was a typo since i meant to write close of service but then published before i caught it.
    yes, a year or longer if possible or until i accept one of those jobs.
    really i havent a clue.
    many of my adopted azeri mothers seem to think returning home ASAP and making babaies is the best life choice.
    tend to disagree w/ that plan.

    I would agree, making babies ASAP is not the best life plan… you have plenty of time!

    I would be a taker on wandering… maybe not a whole year though, but I’d tag along for part of it!
