Like i said not disagreeing with you
but it's not always like that.
(also, i didn't watch the video, youtube is banned from CG computers)
Yes, thanks Remy, I was generalizing and I shouldn't have. My dad was a 22 year govt. employee (army) and I have several family members on both sides that work in education. Growing up, we were never wealthy, to say the least!
I truly love the military and am very thankful for the job you and others do. Ditto to the dedicated and hard-working teachers like DonnaMaria.
I think my rant was aimed more specifically towards the mindless bureaucrats that seem to stop caring the moment they get the job; the people that enforce rules and regulations - no matter how ridiculous - rather than using a bit of common sense/compassion. And one of the biggest problems (as I see it) is that we can't get rid of these people, whether in education, DMV, Post Office, DoT, etc., etc.
