I feel we know each other to well my friend. I currently have a plaque from a trophy vertically on the lower right hand side covering the time. Everyone seems to ask me " Whats that for?" and I look at them and go, "You serious?" Its hard to daydream also since someone is in ur damn ear. I try to waste time by chatting on Office communicator with fellow emp's. Making jokes

"Blue collar income"?

I don't think you're either quite aware what blue collar means, or how much money you can make in the trades. I worked in a fabrication shop this summer where all of the contract welders were making $80+/hour and some of the shop welders took home $100,000+/year. Journeyman rate is something above $30/hour or something like that. Blue collar is no different than white collar in that if you're at the bottom, you don't get paid, but if you're good at what you do, you can make some very, very serious bank.
