Have your say
@martin - I work on the rail and got up at 0300hrs to allow time to walk through the snow to get to work to ensure public transport was kept going. And what do I get, abuse from the public when a train is a minute late. There have been no services on my stretch of line cancelled because of snow for a long time now.
@Milligan no one praises me for doing my job and I don't expect them too, I get paid to do it. Why should we praise teachers for doing their jobs?
@A Teacher - "I arrive at school at 8.30am and leave at 3.30pm every day" Wow, you work 365 days a year, I bow to your dedication.
After plouhing my way through all these comments I am beginning to wonder how parents can leave their children 5 days a week in the care of teachers (who are actually people) they so obviously have no thought or respect for.
Maybe these same people could do the job better themselves - there is such a thing as "home-schooling" in which case it wouldn't matter if it snowed purple.
But, I forgot, you need to get a break and a little job yourselves.
