Re: Is it worth it?
VERY astute advice. I had my first experience with the passenger industry this summer. I just thought I'd get my feet wet there on a whim, thought it might be fun to see how that part of the industry lived. Not at all what I expected, not really even enjoyable. It was interesting, I'll give it that, but I can't help but feel that the only enrichment I got out of it was knowing now that I never want to do that again. I'm sure there are people out there who are suited for this work but I know now that I do not appear to be one of them. So go out and try everything you can at least once in your life, but whatever you do, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

As I was a walkin' down London Road I come to Paddy West's house. He gave me a feed of "American hash" and he called it "Liverpool Scouse". He said, "There's a ship who's wantin' hands, and on 'er ye'll quickly sign! The mate is a bastard, the bos'un's worse but she will suit ye' fine!
