Maybe ask yourself what made so many plasterers come across as "miserable"?Thanks for the genuine replies, much appreciated.
In all honesty, if I had to work with some of you lot, judging by your replies, I’d probably f*****g hang myself. Miserable t***s. Haha.
Crazy idea it takes years and years of working with someone who actually knows what they are doing to pick it up properly and it's hard work with too many different aspects to learn to start at your age I wouldn't give you a year before you gave up you simply wouldn't earn any decent money for years and yeah all your joints will be f**k*d if you stick at itI'm thinking of retraining as a plasterer at 40. this probably sounds stupid to some people but I've worked in an office for 20 years and it's done nothing but make me miserable and a a little bit overweight.
Obviously I'm no spring chicken and won't be able to retire before I'm 65. Are there many plasterers still going at 60?
Also, what are the physical aspects of plastering? Is it just the carrying of sacks, on the feet all day? Do you carry many injuries?
How are people bearing up at 40/50 years old?
Rather pad saw my eye balls out than sit in an office day in day out. It’s up there with going the gym 2 most boring places in the world, library is third.Stay in the office and go to the Gym!! Too much dust and repetitive s**t in this game , We are all knackered really , The truth is out there !! Couple o months in you’ll be dreaming of that lovely comfy office chair.
