I waited a few days to see if anyone posted this before I do...I guess many of you don't get or read the Wall Street Journal. So, here it is:


"The Plumber be not a mere human tradesperson whose skills can be acquired from a YouTube tutorial, like an electrician, cable guy or drywaller."

In my opinion the general looks at us a a sub species of humans, Not very smart, Neanderthal looking , dirty . in this trade you start as a 120 weakling and end up as a hulk . the clients would want to have over for dinner. Some clients would not let me in their front door, i had to go around to the back door, some would not let me use their bathroom rather i had to go to a gas station, I worked in the trade for 30 years boy do i have stories. I must admit that i did have very nice nice clients that treated me very well. But now that i am retired and go to Florida most winter , where in meet all kind of other trades people that have also do very well it was worth it.
