Favorite job: Playing keyboards for a rock group back in the 70's. So many women so little time.......

My unhappiest job......KFC, deep frying chicken.
My happiest job.....selling marijuana. Woo Hoo....always had cash in my pocket....those days are long gone.
There is an expression in nursing; "we eat our young"! And we do, as I said "no support" as it always felt like "us" against "them" when I started out. If we wish to stop the nursing crisis, we need to be supportive of each other and make this wonderful profession successful again.

And now, with the far-right's chants of down-with-the-union, people want to cheat the teachers of what's effectively delayed pay in their retirement pensions. With that attitude, I'd advise every young person to avoid a career in teaching: America will screw you if possible out of fair compensation.
