NOOOOOOO of course not! At least thats what they said in the interview! I might as well be teaching APATHY 101, because nobody cares! Weekend riding is my only form of sanity.
Dude,I have nothing but the upmost respect for you and your profession.
Thanks for doing what most wouldnt even consider.

I'm a telecommunications technologist and I run an 6 person application development/programming dept within AT&T Cananda.
Motorcycles ...especially the WR, make it all worth while.

I used to do implementation scripts for various phone operators, but now my (entire departement) tasks have evolved to just sit in front of a computer writing manuals (boring as h*ll).
I also work at a 7-eleven once or twice a week (five to midnight) to be able to afford riding. Me and the wife just had our first child, so money is VERY tight - but one has to ride

Right now I guess I got it pretty good, have 7 days a week to ride and I get an unemployment check mailed to me every two weeks.
Unfortunately that will all be coming to an end this Monday as I resume my career as a bewildered mechanical engineer doing very little related to mechanical engineering. Took a sink or swim job of being responsible for the growth and success of a start up HVAC service company as a spin off of an existing construction company. Ought to be quite interesting as I am next to clueless!

I am a city cop in the narcotics unit. I do all the technical surveillance for the department. Wire taps, photos,tracking, bodywires, covert cameras, etc. I am the guy that's always in the van with the headphones on.
Before the posts start about bad traffic tickets, I have not written a ticket in ten years.

I meander aimlessly around the plant looking at stuff (monitoring all operating equipment outside the Control Room).
I get paid for what I know, not necessarily what I do. (I look, listen, feel, smell the plant operate, and determine if it is doing it correctly).
The U.S. Navy trained me to competantly operate/run the mechanical watchstations of a U.S. Navy Trident Class Missle submarine's engineroom (USS Tennessee)
They (navy) forced down my throat:
Heat Transfer and fluid flow
basic electrical/electrical theory
steam propulsion and electricl generation systems
When I am at home, my specialties are:
professional snow removal technician
profeesional lawn care technician
carpet/wood floor installer guy
VCR/TV repair technician
Alpha Dog (to my dog, Fargo)
FCR Carburator Tuner/Struggler
Computer repair/builder guy
Northwood Town drunk
the guy that drives too fast in the neighborhood
LAST & LEAST!!
Yamaha WRF400 Rider/Owner/Mechanic
