Are you looking for hard skills or soft skills as both are critical.

Cool

Lynn,

This is for entertainment only and that is why I posted it in "Anything that is NOT about SQL!" category.

This category isn't really limited to entertainment, but if so, whatever.

Finger pointing?

Yes, definitely one of the top 10 must-have skillz for DBA's.
I got all the pics from mssqltips.com. It seems to me that reading/writing on glass panel in reverse is definitely trending these days. The little gummy guy has definitely got it down. He (yes, it's a he) needs to work on his diagraming skill though - just look at the Customer table. LOL

Nice circular reference there. Run in fear.

Kind of but they're all using the wrong finger. Wink Heh... bloody non-quals. Wink

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
