I've been helping out a plumber for the last week, and will be for the next month or so. I know what you're thinking...how's my plumber's crack coming along? Well, as far as I'm concerned that's something that has to be earned, and I've only been on the job three days. Don't worry though I'll post pictures as mine develops. So far it's been a good job; I like it. I work for a good ol boy from elizabethton; he talks real fast and works real hard. We only work on new constructions, so I don't have to mess with anybody's mess.
The best thing about this job is that I'm getting paid to learn a practical skill. When I went in on Tuesday I didn't know a lick about plumbing, and three days later I've gotten to help lay out and install a complete house with PVC and copper. Mostly, my boss measures, I cut, and then he'll fit it. More and more though, I've gotten to do a little more, like sweat joints and glue the pipes. I'm no pro, but I should have a pretty good handle on it after a month right?
Happy Easter if I don't see you
