1. No, I appreciated working in a nuc power plant (am a Nuc Med tech...and going on 40...., worked upper & lower ICE just shy of three weeks back on a severely broken ankle, which contain(-s, -ed) 2 plates & 12 screws. Not once complained about how bad my ankle hurt in steel toes in the cold conditions).
2. Learned a lot while I was there, but was too busy working in arctic cold temps with a wet butt, hair, and fogged-up safety glasses to take notes on my wet-boronated-water-mixed-with-a-little-glycol-notebook.
3. Not interested in a hand-out. A hand-up or a hand would be nice.
And, YES, you missed something. A lesson for you. Don't make assumptions (with or without the addition of a smiley face- seems a little passive aggressive.)
