In Australia we have to do a 4 year apprenticeship and our work has to be to a pretty good standard to pass.-Fred Nerd (August 14, 2010, 04:13 AM)
Now if only they taught the buggers that you don't need to broadcast a radio for a 500 metre radius because you'll never hear it over the power tools anyway.
Apologies if you are the exception.-4wd (August 14, 2010, 05:48 AM)
Haha, I am certainly no exception. I bought one of those awesome Makita stereos, and plug the iPod into it, crank it right up and I can hear it nicely in the breaks between using power tools.
Just think of it this way: you have to put up with it for the day or 2 we are working next door, for us its every day of our life. Our job is way underpaid and involves a lot of unpleasant-ness (dust, noise, fumes, banged thumbs, unpaid bills etc) so think about that next time you hear a radio for a day or 2.
BTW, Normally I work in rural areas where no-one else can hear me, so I'm reasonably innocent of annoying people
