If it's my job and I see the pot of gold at the end of the day, I don't get sick.

If you're paying me wages that barely pay my bills while half the country is living off the government, why the hell would I want to show up when I feel like shit or have vacation days build up that you force me to use or lose at the end of the year?

I have some down time at certain times of the year and often get asked to help on projects. The pay is never very good and I normally know what kind of cut the lead guys is getting. If it's over 90, **** you. If I'm sick, **** you. I'm not starving and would much rather be sitting in the shade fishing than suffering though something for a few extra bucks. It's not a work ethic issue, it's a quality of my life issue.
****. Yes. The last line is gold. When it's my money, I'll be there. When it's your money that I'm barely seeing any of, **** off. I'll come when I want. You're in business? So am I, and you don't pay well enough for me to give a ****.

None of that has mattered in the last 2 years though. I get paid, but I could never look someone in the eye and say I work for a living. People can talk shit about my profession all they want. I get paid ridiculously for pretty much nothing.
