Tom is a "union taper", so all drywall, all the time.

He has a complete love hate relationship.

Love: Being alone while doing the work, even with a crew of 50-100 guys, he doesn't have to chit chat like in most places we have worked.
Hate: Having to work with my Dad most of the time.

Love: The money, the 401K plan and retirement plan, the Innnuity (SP????),
Hate:Constant layoffs, back before layoffs only happened 1-2x a year, now it happens every few weeks..and lastly the set hours when actually working.
Hate: When he is laid off we have to rely on side work, and the hours there just suck. Nothing is paid by the hour, and one job that he makes $1500 on can take 3 weeks, while another with the same price, can take 3 days. Sometimes he'll go in as early as 7 and not get home until 9-10. Then other days he is only gone an hour.

Nicole: Tom's Wife [5.7.05]; Mommy of Thomas [9.6.05], Collin [1.17.08], & Bailey [10.2.09]
