well, if it's any consolation, after all these years, she's STILL a fucking teacher.
I'm glad they understand. but hell, gotta go where the money is. You work to make $$$ no? besides, after say, 5-10 years of teaching snot-nosed brats who don't respect you for shit anyways, you really think it's _still_ their passion? Odds are they're stuck in their situation and spending all they can on lotto tix.
It wasn't a stab, most high-paying jobs don't allow holidays or most of the days teachers get off. What I meant was, combined with doing something you like, there's actually a plus side to taking the lower-paying job. in all honesty, I've realized my time is worth more than my money nowadays. Money comes and goes but...time, you'll never get back.
I can understand drinking on parents day. Primary schools almost always make you sit on those little childrens chairs, and if it's one of those parents days where all the classes put on performances it can get pretty tedious. My daughters school actually sells beer at the school functions like that. Anyways, maybe she only remembered that because she was concerned about you, so it's kind of nice in a way.
