    I know exactly what you mean Unklescott. My husband and I owned a restaurant for 10 years and I had a sign posted in my kitchen that said, "Notice to Employees... Some of you feel you are not being paid what you are worth......... BE GRATEFUL!"

    If I had my choice, I'd work with animals. A habitat, zoo or something of the like. Seriously, humans are just plain rude/mean when you have to work a customer service job. Working with animals..yeah, that's it...that's the ticket.

    So Maveno, you say you'd like to learn to be a Pressman ? The "white collar" bozos at my company call us that, while we make lots more money in most cases

    Really though, I trained horses part for spare money and sometimes fulltime between 'real' jobs for 20 years; I loved it, but I knew I wouldn't want to do it forever, plus you still have to deal with the owners. It's still possible that I might want to go back to buying and retraining problem animals at some point, so they could go to better homes. I'm not too old to work with 'one at a time' instead of a whole barn full.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I would be in heaven if I worked with horses all day!! Actually, any animals.. all day! I guess I am a pressman, queenb!

    I also hate rude staff who think they deserve higher wages...
    Minibuses:
    They get a basic wage+ a bonus for every return journey made.
    Problems:
    1. People think there needs to be a raise... It was raised 3 months ago and it is 53% higher than the government standard minimum wage. Also... My firm is one of the highest paying transportation firms, why bloody complain?
    2. Drivers claim "they forgot to sign the form". I don't trust many drivers with that one
    3. Drivers do the above but don't drive as much as they should be driving.

    I work doing a combination of Lan Administrator with side duties of training and software support of Wide-format reprographics.

    The worst parts of my jobs?

    Getting calls on weekends and at night when someone cannot find their hotel reservation but they remembered that they had it in their email.... would I be a dear and find it for them.

    Morons (affectionately called 'clients') who have to be told every two days how to get their printer working (note: people... its port 2000)

    SOB's that complain about the pr0n of their machines, and the slowness, and its because they have been surfing pr0n (not that there is anything wrong with pr0n)

    People that don't understand that just because the M's game is on, doesn't mean that everyone in the office can have it on their machines (through internet Radio).... cmon fellas, your co-workers in portland need to be able to get in....

    and finally crackers (or as laymen call them: hackers).
