These things crack me up. One of the things I try and teach to my high school students is trouble shooting. They are definetly part of the instant gratification/ character died game over restart generation. I'm sure shops are seeing some of these fine young people showing up at their doors. If it's work and they don't get paid/ it isn't easy they want no part of it. They don't like to "learn" how something works in the class room but would love to spend hours in the shop goofing around attempting to "fix it" with sub par workman ship.

There are some kids out there that will be a credit to the trades and I do my best to instill some work ethic and problem sloving skills in all students.
