Hey CCG, don't sweat it you will find another job and probably a better one with a better boss. I can't count the number of times I moved on to better situations and better people.

I am also looking at a self-employment (freelance) opportunity but so far it looks like a lot of effort and work for not really serious money. The question is, do I want to work hard again?

Depends what you do, my main gig is plastering, 2 full coats on ceilings and walls, it seems in the US they only plaster the board seams from what I read, but here in the UK it is a big job.
Good money as well, which explains why I only work 2 or 3 days a week usually.
Funny as # leaving today, matey will have to clean off my first coat before anyone else will finish the job.

Here in Canada we only plaster the seams as well, but it has to be done with thin coats and lots of sanding and dust everywhere. I can't imagine the time, effort and mess plastering all the walls and ceilings, oh me, oh my.

I have a closet to do in the spare room, which I am avoiding. I know what you are going to say, let the kids do it, lol, okay I will.

Haha, yes, let the newb's do it.
Honestly though, the British way of two full coat plastering the whole surface is much better. It lasts longer as well.
It becomes the wall and ceiling in a thick single/double layer.

edit on 15-10-2018 by CornishCeltGuy because: added 'double'

We call it mudding or joint compound and from what I am reading it is different from plastering, in that joint compound is more prone to cracking than plaster, and also requires three coats.

Isn't that less than a 1/4 of an inch? If so, you're a nice guy.
