I have guys at work who sometimes complain about how hard it is and how it is a burden to be offshore and away from their family and I say, "Hey, if it was fun and easy they wouldn't call it work. You are paid to be here. This isn't prison. We have helicopters everyday, just let me know when you want to be on one." It pisses me off when a high school dropout making a 6-figure salary and only working half the year complains. Quit already! Go work at 7-11 if that will make you happy.
I had one kid, his first job ever, making $50k a year. He complained to me that he was underpaid. He said, "I could make this money working for UPS and be home every night". I said, "Well then go work for UPS". Another problem solved.
