Man, all this talk about teacher and electricians has me salivating over the big money they make.

I'm a police officer with over 9 years in. I make $36,000 a year. I work year round, carry a gun, wear a dark uniform with a vest that makes me sweat, have a certain percentage of society who wants to kill us all and so on.

If my wife didn't make her $14,000 a year working at a pre-school, I think I'd qualify for HUD housing.
