I knew I should have payed more attention in school. My job entails cleaning toilets, sweeping sidewalks, picking up after people,
settling disputes, and getting yelled at. But my favorite part of the job is catching rats. The one in the freezer that goes through a stack of frozen pizzas has me extremely bewildered.
ahhh.....the life of a Asst. Mgr. in a grocery store Thank God for Motorcycles!!!!

6:30am-coffeemaker, it comes with being the first at the shop.
7:00am-fight breakerupper, 2 crew leaders couldn't agree on something. Nobody loves a snitch so I never found out what the beef was.
8:00 to 9:00am-receptionist until the real one gets in, 1 sales lead and 4 different salesman trying to sell whatever it is they sell. I tell them the owner comes in at nine.
9:00 to 10:30am-payroll clerk, every construction worker on this planet wants his check on Friday after work.
11:00am-sales assistant, helping a pool designer/salesperson close a deal with nothing more than dropping names of neighbors we've built pools for. She should of asked me before the first meeting and I could of given her names and addresses of a couple of dozen customers in their subdivision.
12:00noon to 1:30-machine operator, showing one of my guys how to dig up a tree-stump without abusing my excavator. You think he cares that I paid almost 50thou for this toy.
2:00pm-landscape architect, thank god it took over a halfday to do the new sprinkler zones. Half the plants weren't laid out according to the landscape plan. Homeowners usually don't notice, but with my luck this one would. One of these days I'm going to start doing plans in both english and spanish so nobody can use that excuse again.
3:00pm-electrician, rewire the panel showing the journeyman how to wire in the low and high sides of digital controller relays and explain to him how GFCI line and load neutrals must be kept seperate in the box when wiring pool lamps. I understand that every man has to learn somewhere, but don't charge me full invoice time to be his teacher.
4:30pm-plumber, finish setting the equipment so the real plumber can tee into the meter to plumb the gas risers for the pool heater. Both I and the homeowner told him to have it done by 5:00pm as they're leaving town for the weekend. He'd of left them without gas, and as a result no hot water or heat for not doing it in time, than I'd of got the dreaded Sunday evening call from the answering service that their home and pissed off. I would be the one to go over, take the ass chewing, turn on the gas and relight the pilots.
6:00pm-superintendent, drive by 2 jobs in the same subdivision. Everything is okay, this is the way it should always be.
6:40pm-lawbreaker, screw the open container law. Everyone knows construction workers love cold beer so I bought 2 for the ride to the shop, after today I earned them.
I'm a pool construction contractor and just like everyone else the title doesn't match the job description.

Maybe a few other things.......
