But, the metal aspect can be tough. Not so much the burden of "responsibility", but just some of the BS and moronic things people do and say. You really are a glorified babysitter a lot of times, and it can be draining.
But honestly, it's worth all the crap. It's the best job in the world (for me at least).
Do you get to keep the drugs you get off the 16 year olds?
