What happened in your life to make you so cynical?
A friend of mine has worked his way up through the plumbers union here in Southern California.Both Dog and my friend have the same dimeanor.He's very talented and focused person.He also ventured through contracting.
My friend is one wrung from the top of the ladder as far as foreman/supervisor goes.He does not want to go any farther up(he doesn't like the brown stain on his nose)
He is capable of unbalivable installations,and runs the projects very well.
The problem with him is simple.He pushes himself hard to be efficient and productive.This has a price,the frustration of the rest of the world not being as intense and thoughtfull.
The extra bite we get with Dog is he loves to tease.Kind of a litmus test to see if you are what you say you are
Don't know what this has to do with the price of tea in China,but it's just a thought I would like to share
Dog, Sorry I found your post alil confusing, was "How the Plumber Saved Civilization" any good? I'm always interested in plumbing books and was curious to your opinions on it before I buy it.
I've stated before on a post it is a book worth reading if you are a plumber. I know you are of limited funds, being an apprentice, so you can check it out at your local library. If they don't have it ask the librarian if they can borrow it from another library. They usually can.
Libraries are one of the great untapped resources of this country. They are free, and helpful.
