i just retired after 40 years rotorwing, GOM, EMS, Corporate, AK, Fires. Main reason was cause of the know it all,  disrespectful melinials also! What a terrible generation we’ve raised! Both pilots and mechanics! When I was coming up through the ranks, I always respected and sought advice and information from my senior mechanics. “ yes, as always, there were some real losers in the ranks”. But, all in all, worked extremely well with others and listened to the more experienced guys! Two seasons ago, almost got in an actual fight with a young brand new A&P over him changing parts that were well within limits. I had a 2x4 laying 2 foot away to take him out if he swung. The idiot “from Seattle area”still had his temporary paper ertificate. Reported him and not a thing was done! Had a fire pilot with total of 6 weeks experience “former rookie tour pilot”  being extremely careless and violating safety procedures. I called him out privately and explained I am just trying to help keep him safe. He blew up and again, we almost went after it. I said screw this, will be reading about him in an accident report one day! Just hope he’s alone when it happens! There are some good jobs local and pay just as well. I have a CDL, drive medical patients part time just for something to do. Also, with mechanical background, help out at the local ACE hardware. Just check around local, these young spoiled melenials are worthless. Lots of work available if you’re willing to work!
