By the way the FO's will not fly everyday full time, so its not like im out everyday flying for free. Maybe once a week, if even.
Yeah, and I only kick puppy dogs a few days a week so that doesn't make me a bad person right?
Look, you came and ask for advice and you got it. Not ONE PERSON who has replied even remotely implied this is a good thing. And that feedback came from, by my count, 4 regional FOs, a Delta pilot, an AirTran Pilot and a Freight Dog.
The problem is, the response they gave you isn't the one you wanted to hear. Sucks when that happens, but that's reality. So from here on out you've got two options. A) take the advice and find other ways to get your multi time. If you really don't feel like CFIing is for you (and as far as I'm concerned that's BS... I've never seen somebody who honestly can't instruct, although I've seen plenty of people who don't want to) then fine, there are tons of other things out there, but they take a little effort to find. B) ignore the advice here and go be a seat warmer and gain "knowledge" but no pay while keeping down the chances of a bunch of other people actually making a living while getting started in this industry.
But the one thing you shouldn't do is try to argue for the posistion of the response you hoped to hear when you first posed the question.
