I (Ronnie) worked myself through college doing Construction,…. I gave my tool belt to my father right before I moved to California. I decided then that I would never ever work Construction again,…. I have had enough,… plus I knew I wouldn’t be able to compete with all the Mexis out here.

But when I worked outside everyday,.. I was strong as fuck,… I took pride in getting stuff done as fast as possible. It was actually kind of like a sport. Construction workers are tough Mofos, from the inside out…. the guy with the biggest back I have ever seen in my life worked for a concrete company,…. He dug the trenches manually instead of using a machine.
