My view on things is, why the **** do I wanna lay on a ceiling and wall, then three walls with all the reveals, all for a days money, when Im turning somones shithole room into a perfect room that when painted, will look the nuts.. why the **** would I do that, working non stop all day, just for a days money... when you get sparks and gas fitters charging a fortune for what is essentially a physically easy job, and they get time to sit down, drink tea, down tools and enjoy their jobs.. Personally I wanna do the same, so I will put on as much as I feel I want to put on, and still walk away earning a fair wage, I want to enjoy my job, not work my arse off just to pay my bills! Us spreads are the only ones that seem to be expected to kill ourselves for what in essence is just enough to get by and maybe have a night out at the weekend! All those days we get let down by customers, jobs cancel, end up sat at home earning **** all.. its hard enough as it is to earn good money doing this ****, so if Im gonna do it, I wanna make life as easy as possible for me on those days I am working!
As far as variables go.. What about those kitchens, where people only want the area between units skimmed, end up taking all day if not more, doing your best to not get electrocuted by all the sockets, not damaging the work tops with your trowel, wet angles coming out your ear holes etc/ Im done struggling with **** like that, if lifes gonna be made awqward for me, I want paying for it!
