PC, you sound just like what I experienced as a Cincinnati Ohio plumber for a few years. It's a great education process that teaches you to be well rounded as a plumber.
One day you'll rodding drains, next day changing steam rads, or the very next day you're working in the bronx in section 8 housing and nobody cares about the 7 month old clog in the basement. Somewhere in the middle of a week you'll work for a private residence that's bigger than a public school, admiring what old money bought decades ago. Some of the homes I worked at were so amazing in architecture.
There's a speed you eventually get to look forward to as well.
