this could be a good thing

Kevin came home from work yesterday and started talking about a possible job opportunity. I guess that GQ, the company that his boss contracts through, has the patent on some new type of drywall finish. Every time this finish is applied, it has to be by GQ union guys. They need a crew to go all over the country (and parts of the world) to apply this finish. One of the guys that Kevin works with just came back from 6 days of training/working, and he made $3500...with his hotel and flight paid and a $50/day meal allowance.


Now Kevin is trying to decide if he should go for the training.

Let's review:
1. He would be gone approximately 10-14 days at a time, and then home for 10-14 days (during which he could be doing his regular drywall job).
2. He would make more in one day than I currently make in a week.
3. He would be gone approximately 10-14 days at a time...oh, wait - did I say that one already?

Let's give it 2 seconds worth of thought before we say "hell, yes!"

So he decided alst night that if he takes this job, I'm going to need to learn how to fix the little things around the house. the last few months I've already installed a phone line, rewired an outlet, snaked the toilet and resplined the screen in the front door. NOW he's going to show me how to use a screwdriver to remove the screw in the bathtub drain so I can clean the hair out of it?

Sure. When does this new job start again?

Of course, with the Craigs' luck, the job will disappear before he can actually start it.
