It does. Enter your job in the blank and then imagine day after day...

people all over talking about about how bad your profession is, how bad you suck at your job, constantly changing how you do your job whether its done right or not. Criticism with no knowlege of what we do. Sacrificing your time, energy, family and sometimes life.
Regardless of what you do. 99% of folks never even have their jobs mentioned by the public, politicians or whoever.
Walk in their shoes and see what its like. You can get on here and pontificate all the bullshit you want being sarcastic or serious but you dont know jack!

These folks try their best to educate and protect. Its sickening the bullshit
they have to hear and put up with on a daily basis for know nothings like some on this board, politicians, parents and all over!
If it keeps up, folks are going to have to pay for their child's education, teach them at home and protect themselves the best they can. Teachers and cops are leaving the profession in droves.
My wife just left after teaching 20 years. Got a job with a defense contractor making 35k more, works from home, and does less work without the headaches and BS. I would be gone if I was not so close to retirement. Thankfully I immerse myself in teaching, coaching and mentoring, so I try to make the best of it.
For the others, thanks for the support. Both jobs receive little praise or recognition!
