Go to the High Road training section on this site and STUDY the Logbook section. Over and over! Hours or weeks, whatever it takes. Print out sample sheets and practice. Brett has done an excellent job putting it together. Get your wife to study with you, you CAN do it, they are not easy but can be mastered by anyone. Do not give up. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE

Logbook:

My mistake was I assumed when They said refresher course and go with a trainer for 21 days I would learn then. Had I been told I would have learned it but it never crossed my mind

Wow. Attempted robbery on a Greyhound! If anyone had tried that on me, Greyhound would have had a BLOODY MESS to clean up. I hope you reported it to Greyhound and the POLICE!
