Don't bother mate. He doesn't even try to reply any longer.
He is a martyr, engaged in self-sacrifice for our collective sins, underpaid, underappreciated, overworked, unloved and tortured, all for the good of his kids.
Lifetime should make a movie about him tbqh.
But he's not interested in criticism, debate or exchange. He wants our pity, our respect, our love and of course (shhhh) more money and bennies.
And he wants it without us horrible evil taxpayers saying a word, having standards, questioning anything or expressing anything other than aforementioned demanded pity, love and respect.
Simple as that. It's a microcosm for so many in Public Service, who seem to think we're all so damn lucky to have them, that they are irreplaceable.....and that they don't just work a job, just like the rest of us schlubs, they're better than us. They're special, and we should be happy to pay for their specialness.
