Thank God (who you can't mention in school), that the rewards of the job outweigh the bad.

Bad behavior IS my job. I teach at the alternative school in my county. I am the HS science guy. Been doing so for 17 seasons. Horrible parents....had one get arrested along with his son this last semester. The bad behavior, often, is learned at home! I like it so far...but, there are days!

I enjoy wrenching on my vehicles. But, often I am doing things I have never done this. Never worked on a hydraulic clutch before....very different stuff. And, it has been 20 years since I pulled a tranny. But, I have the tools, time, and determination. The sense of satisfaction of doing it "yourself" cannot be overstated...I wish more people today would do "hard" things, might solve some of their angst!
Because it is my bike and I like it that way!
