No, but it is interesting, that my wife finds it more appropriate that he was firefighter, and i myself. I know that we should not judge people by
their profession, but what do you judge people by, their gender, their height, their weight? Do we sit back and allow others to put us into categories
of which we don't belong? I have two children, I am a male, and i am not allowed to sit next to children on a flight, which, after flying long haul
flights with my kids, i know what it can be like. This is an appalling policy, it is utter rubbish and a sign of things to come. Which is a travesty.
There is so much right with our society, and there is so much wrong. But as we become more uptight, more politically correct we loose our common
sense. Australian culture is based on a fair go, and common sense, but slowly and surely we are to become like America and the UK, people will not
stand for such lunacy for ever. People need to take responsibility for themselves, and their own children in this case. No child should be flying
alone, not ever, now the parents may have a legitimate reason, i don't know? But some parents shirk the responsibility of being parents to the point
where they are nothing more then figure heads mum and dads. Time is short on this earth, you don't realize it when you are young, but it is, and i
cherish every moment with my kids, i hate going to work, because i know i will miss a moment in time that i can not get back. And no matter how much
money we make, in the end, all you want to buy is more time with your loved ones, a prize that money can't buy.
