I agree, I cant remember ever being thanked for my efforts, on several ships I worked my ass off bringing them up to standard after they had had Eastern European Engineers on board, and after a 6 month trip of working a minimum of 12 hour days, 7 days a week, getting everything more or less to rights, been relieved by another Eastern European who didn't know the difference between a hammer and a spanner. My reward was to relieve another Eastern European Engineer and go through the same procedure again.
Personally I am now concentrating on managing my property portfolio and stock market investments.
It is always better to ask a stupid question than to do a stupid thing.
