After doing yet more plumbing work over the weekend, I've decided that in my next life I'm definitely coming back as a plumber.
The reasons are many:
- honorable, respected profession
- pays decently
- people complain about the prices, but generally end up paying
- cool toys, er tools
- you can go old-school and play with fire
- customers are grateful even for minor jobs. As a matter of fact, their gratitude may be in opposite proportion to the difficulty of the job.
Then there's all the work caused by DIYers, but we won't go into that . . .
