All the trades have pros and cons. Off the top of my head here's some of the things I don't like:
I'm not even 30 and I have the joints of an old crone.
My hand is that calloused it looks like I have a serious chronic masterbation problem.
My lungs are probably buggered from years of not wearing a mask.
I spend hours every week cleaning my f**k**g van.
You get sick to the back teeth of "did you get any on the wall"
At the end of the day it's like any trade you get out of it what you put in. If you've enjoyed the last few weeks with this guy then crack on.

The way things are going i would take it. Learn as much as you can from him and don't f**k off to work for yourself as soon as you can skim a wall or two. When you have a trade you can always earn some money good times and bad and the bad times are coming .

We're all cut from different cloth mate, I think I'd be lucky to be able to graft at this at 41 let alone 71. First time my back went I was 15 so maybe it's genetics.

I'm getting the distinct feeling that "he wants me to do an apprenticeship with him" is a euphemism for something vile and degrading.

Well to me it sounds like he's thinking of giving him a chance that's how it comes across from where I'm sat.being pro active would be begging him for a job
Could be either or everything in between. If he doesn’t know any other spreads then he’s got a bit of gumption for asking the question.
