You sound like a complete A hole (you're a pilot after all), but your advice is spot on.
Every EMS pilot should get out of EMS to get away from EMS people, if not any other reason.
If I have to endure listening to another excop check airman explain why you should always file an IFR alternate --because they're too dumb to know the rules why or why not to use one, I'm going to throw up.
More money is nice. Being away from complete idiots is even nicer.
