Tbf he's probably s**t...just a numpty that enjoys having smoke blown up his arse from someone that wouldn't know any different!!!

No busy sane plasterer would invite a bird to watch him plaster all day unless of course he thinks he could stick 1 on you!!

I could think of nothing worse when your busy grafting!!!

And this was the problem I had! No one would take me on! Shame because I was grafter and I learnt quick.... when you think of all the threads about s**t labourers and apprentices, the building company I started with had been through plenty of them and yet they stuck with me!

So so so.......... :burlas:

Mate you haven't met the gaffer of our building company!

When I laboured for them I used to go home black and blue from digs, they called me wide-load and bollocked me if I was a minute early for being late! To name a few :rolleyes:

All very true! And yet we're all still doing it! Lots of cons but great pros... I go to work with my best mate, brew up radio on we have a good laugh and can do something not many can! Not bad really. No desk, no manager no bullshit politics

Defo but when it’s bad it’s bad but when good it’s good I’m basically in a bad period not that you can tell

That's all good and well for now!

However turn it on its head and imagine your work partner decided to pack up!

90% of domestic plasterers work on there own and believe me it suddenly overnight would become and feel a much much harder job!

erm...I enjoy it. Makes the day go quick cos you don't have a time to stand around, and no matter how shitty the room looked to start with, it looks great after it's finished.

Some poor suckers do nothing but dig trenches for a living! Dig hole...fill hole...dig hole...fill hole...
