Qualifying Statement



On a Dublin Bus this morning

William writes:

“‘Qualified success’ means ‘partial success’ – so their college poster-child [possibly posed by model] is literally saying ‘I want to be a partial success’. All the more amusing as this college specialises in communications…”

      Fupp you and your poxy ‘pendants of the world’ society.

      Us choker-wearers have been standing on the outside looking in for too long!

    Well their communications skills managed to get their bus poster shared on Broadsheet. A qualified success in itself.

    A few inconsistencies too: “Environmental Management” vs. “Retail management”. Not great for the Communications and Management Institute.

    Even Trinity College are the business of hawking Master’s degrees on buses and DARTs.

    No wonder they’re slipping the ranks so quickly.

    Could just be honest advertising from a college that, let’s face it, tends to attract people who can’t get in anywhere else. “It’s not quite Ivy League, but doing a course here will probably be of some use when it comes to getting a job.”

    “Qualified success” could also mean a successful person who has an academic qualification but don’t let the facts get in the way of something else.

      That’s not what it means, it’s not how that word is used. This isn’t pedantry or misreading, if something is a ‘qualified’ anything, it means there’s a ‘but’ after it.

        John Murphy is a qualified accountant but someone over there just drew a picture of crystal meth on a carpet.
