If you get paid that is. It is notorious up here to run after your money if you even get it.

I used to control them with concrete boots on my feet and a claw hammer in my hand. To quote a Steve Earl song, that can get you into trouble but it can’t get you out.

Bird dogging a job is probably the best solution. Problem is, no one wants to pay a plumber to watch concrete gorillas.
