One of the hardest things for construction workers to do is to not make it rain.
I know the feeling. You get the heck out of the job and then, three days later, that drizzle starts. You work through the rain, thinking you can get back to your job and get the heck out of it. Then, you’re stuck, because, you know what, your boss isn’t going to let you take time off. And when it starts raining, you start to get anxious and see that it’s not just raining.
You start to ask yourself, what kind of idiot wouldnt let me take time off. I know some of you have an answer, but no one else can relate to the fact that you feel like you cant take a day off. It’s because you, like I, have this fear that you might not be able to go back to work. It’s a fear that only someone who has never worked in a construction job can understand.
Well, you cant work in construction. There are no construction jobs. There are no jobs. There is no construction. There is no job. I mean, the only thing that is a construction job is that you do it with your hand. You are a hands-on person. Construction is not a job. If you are going to say, “Hey, I think I can go home for a little bit,” then you are a moron.
I think that we need to make a distinction here. I do not think that there is anything wrong with going home for a little bit, in fact I think that it is essential for us to make a distinction here. You could go home for a week, or maybe a month. You could go home to your parents. You could go home to your friends. You could go home to your family. You could go home to your community. That’s okay. That’s what we call home.
The point is that we are not just home, we are family, we are friends, we are neighbors. We are community.
But the point is, that there is always going to be a distinction, that people are not just family, friends, etc. You will always have a home, you will always have a community, you will always have a family, etc. To the extent that a distinction exists, the world is going to be different for you, because you have to think about these things on a different level.
Exactly. And for us, that makes perfect sense. The world can’t be “just like home” that all the time. We are different. The world needs to be different. I guess that’s why we call it the “we” part.
The whole point of these threads is that it’s very easy to get lost in the idea of “we” in the first few threads and then in the last few threads and not know what you are actually talking about. I’m not saying that there are no “we” anywhere. I’m saying that the “we” isn’t all of you. You are a unique group of people who are all going to be different.
But the thing is, we all come from a very specific life. That is, we each live our lives in very specific ways. This makes it very hard to find common ground. And, just like any group of people, there are differences. People who know and understand the other person will probably know and understand them. People who do not know each other will probably not know each other.
