Teachers Taking a Break
My old boss Pete hates teachers. At first I thought it was because he's a towering idiot, but now I'm pretty sure he just likes to argue. I ran into him at a tradeshow awhile ago after not seeing him for about three years. After catching up on our jobs and personal lives for a few minutes, he jumped right into a story about how the teachers back in my hometown are still all complaining about not getting paid enough. He knows I always take the teachers' side since everyone in my family except for me teaches, but for the first time yesterday I could see where he was coming from. Don't get me wrong, I still think his angle on teachers as lazy whiners is utterly stupid beyond compare, but when my friend here told me that she was on summer break for the next three months, I caught of glimmer of what he was talking about. Important job, though.
