Tired of everybody telling me how great they are

When a carpenter tells you he can do everything, he's lying. Or, and this one is the most likely of the two, he's fucking delusional. Everytime in his life he made a mistake? Someone else's fault. All I ever get matched up with are these mother fuckers. Why can't I ever get to work with somebody with just a bit of humility? I've paid my metaphorical dues long enough, I shouldn't have to work with the greatest carpenter ever to not know how to read a tape measure. I guess I'm doomed to listen to these fools the rest of my career. Seems like there are more of them, than there are of guys who understand and realize that having the odd limitation is not so bad. If someone came a long who was as good as he said, I wouldn't care how much of a braggerd he was. Haven't seen it yet though. I hate to generalize but Cape Bretoners and Newfies are the worst offenders. —Stuck in work purgatory
