Hey Paul, who does your wife-nurse work for? Mine works for St. Lukes VNA here in the Bethlehem/Allentown Pa. area.

Nurses. I can't get the hell away from them. Mom was a nurse. Dated many throughout my firefighting/EMS career (mostly ER nurses...) first ex wife is a nurse.....Then dated a few more......Now wife number two is a nurse.....How in the hell did THAT happen??? LOL

That is funny and I thought I might have been the only person doing that. I've married and dated Bankers. Now a school teacher. School teachers are taking all kinds of crap in this country. But at least this woman has a heart i'm now dating.

Remember apprenticeships. You work along side to learn your trade which earned there respect then your wage if they were good enough. If not they were moved on to some thing else.

Apparently now, you come out of school, do an internship and than start at the very top rung of the ladder. Seem to me all they learn now is how to push off responsibility for their mistakes or lack of knowledge on other people, text and whine. IMO Paul

I dated a teacher once....Picked her up when doing a Fire Prevention Program at the school she was teaching at. I liked her, whenever I did something wrong, she made me do it over again.

Randy, You sound like a bug that keeps flying into a light. I've always had real contempt for authority figures, so I married the Principal.

Paul, Will you be at the Long Island Truck Show in two weeks?

All depends I guess. Nurses like anything else - some good, some bad.

My middle daughter graduated 6 months ago with a DNP (Doctor of Nurse Practice) and is now a CRNA (Nurse Anesthetist.) Knock you out for surgery and bring you back.

7 years of really tough, no bullshit college course work you can't fake your way through. And she has $150K student loan debt since they get no pay during internship and have to cover their own cost of living.

The really good news, her first job starting pay is $85. / hour with as many hours as she wants. Yowza. I'm sure as hell not smart enough that I could ever do what she did and we are super proud of her. Glad there is at least one smart one in the family. ;-)

Nurses! my wife is also an RN,senior in charge of the nursing staff at an area hospital specializing in pediatrics,she is also in charge of training all new nurses in procedures,ethics,patient care etc. Almost ALL the new nurses fresh out of school have some type attitude according to her,"not my job" "why do I have to do that?" etc. thank god I married a Jersey Girl with attitude of her own! "because I EFFING told you to do it,thats why!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Mrs Vision is like me,very little tolerance for BS! especially at the workplace! Its true though,they all feel they deserve top pay,all the perks,right out of the gate,my beloved yankee wife has sent more then a few home crying,or thinking of a career change!...........................................Mark

I'm always at that show with my Ferguson Tractor. I tend to block out the L.I. ATHS because of their elitist attutude of who is welcome in their chapter. But I'll be there both days. Paul

Huh !

Maybe that is why my friends are 50 to 70 years old.

And I'm 35

I try to learn all I can from older guys .

Most guys my age and younger don't want to even work

Talk about restore an old truck. Cut/ weld/ machine anything

No clue .

Don't care ah just junk gramps old mack and the toolbox

Full of vintage snap-on and mack tools he busted his ass to get (oh wait put the tools on ebay ! )

Wtf is wrong with people Ok enough I don't want to get started bitching bout our future!

Steve

I'm 35 and have very few friends within 5 years of my age, most are over 40. I got nothing in common with most of the lazy ass hand it to me club crowd. I've worked my ass off my whole life, never been on unemployment, never been out of work more than a week, folks 5 years younger than me drive me nuts.
