You asked and I'll try to explain myself.....here goes
The point was made about Medical / Dental officer salaries.....now move away from Military for a second and think in Civvie terms. Now if being a dentist and doctor was easy everyone will be doing it and we won't have the doctor shortages we have in the country would we?
My comments were not Military centric, I was simply talking about the professions in general. My latter point about people not even deciding to go to university, is in reference to the usual comments that am sure you've heard...."people with degrees can't get a job, why should I bother" etc
I have staff with degrees, but they've told me that they enjoy what they do, and that is all that matters in life.
So for those that jumped in here with both feet, hopefully this clarifies things for you?
Serenity folks...the rule still applies i.e. when you read something, take a break and come back before you pull the rage trigger
Just what the f$&% is THAT supposed to mean??
