haha, yeh, i realise that, tho i imagine you could probably do a fair bit of simple home plumbing maintenance type stuff yourself, most things arent that hard to do, its just that to legally do them you need the tickets, but who needs legal?
i wanna build a house with a turf roof so they cant see it from the air and therefore it doesnt exist :D
fuck the law, humans built houses for thousands of years before there was a government asking for their cut of everything.

Might just go to uni



The money that dedicated Security tech contractors make is huge,
some of the ones that we contract will get 100 callout + hourly rate for the job,

then get a decent as mark up on all the parts they use to repair the alarm (new battery 80 dollars to the client when the tech gets it for 30 etc)

but aparantly a frustrating job?

The people that piss me off the most at uni are engineers, because theyre pretty much all going off to be engineers, mostly cause they heard it pays really well, not because they have any real interest in engineering (at least from talking to the first years I supervise labs for). Plus, theyre mostly douchebags.

it's ok. most of those engineers soon find out that while their upfront pay is pretty good they hit their glass ceiling after a few years and because they are somewhat weak minded they can't escape it. this is assuming they stay there long enough to hit the ceiling, engineer turnover is pretty damn high where i work.

we had one gentleman feel 'guilty' over doing personal work on company time so gave $20 when he quit to try and clear his conscience. great. thanks for the whole $20. arse.

no this thread is pretty interesting, you suck and it illustrates why you suck and how fucking shit you are in general unlike this thread basically.

I'm in tears and my self-esteem is in tatters. I hope you're proud of yourself.
