Don't laugh. Try it, your a smart guy. It should be easy.
You've had enough time off. lets get on the stick & become a productive member off society again. Now the time.
check this out brother...
First off I'm not your brother & second I don't need to listen that drivel.
Either your going to get off your ass & while you are getting unemployment, figure to out. your getting help & now its up to you to do something.
That or whine.
ok, I am not going to get my Cadillac in the garage by sitting on my ass.
are you a painter as a job? construction or contractor related trade job?
just wondering from your handle.
OK, I'll tell a funny story. About 18 year ago I was doing a repaint of the interior of a residence.
One afternoon I was painting their 8 year old daughters bedroom & she comes into the room to watch me. So she's sitting on the bed jabbering to me & then asks "do you like painting?"
I turn around & say "not really" & she says "so why do you do it" & I say "because I'm not smart enough to do anything else, so do good in school or you could end up being a painter".
She went to school the next day & told the teacher what I told her.
I still know the family & she remembers my advice to this day.
"She went to school the next day & told the teacher what I told her."
There is no shame in honest work. I don't care if you suck shit out of sewers. I wish I could get a real job, but my skills are outdated and my eyesight just about gone.
Painting is one thing you can do well or shitty. If you can keep getting work you are probably doing alright at least.
I was gifted with a range of talents. Electronics and most aspects of house remodeling. To say the least I could find work. On my own in fact, I have not filled out a job application since the 1980s. I did at a place called Electrasound and beat out 154 applicants. They had a comprehensive test and I rewrote it. Well actually just pointed out an error.
In remodeling, I could do everything but the roof and the cement work. I made some money at that for a while. I used to have a saying "Hell no I don't want to do it right, but I don't want to come back and do it again". I almost started a company doing electrical work, I was going to call it "Overkill Electric" but then I thought twice and figured that is not quite the right name. But I have wired quite a few houses and the work always passed inspection. In fact in spades. I was taught by real experts at it.
But not everyone gets the same exposure. What I got, I got from a family of people with many skills. That is rare. It did make me some money, but I can't even read a tape measure these days. My PC has an extra big screen just so I can correspond. I could never deal with one of those smart phones.
I would like to have a job, any job. But I can't even run a cash register.
If you paint, then that's what you do. Do it.
If you are doing good work there is no shame in that.
