    Default I Love Side Money

    It's almost like bein a drug dealer or something I reckon. It's nice to have my regular job I do that I get a check for. However, it's alot nicer when I'm at someone's house doin my regular thing and they walk up to me and ask me a question I love to hear. You know, somethin to the affect of..."hey buddy, you ever just dig trenches on the side or will the cable company let you do that?". I always kinda laugh and tell em "heck yeah I do!!". See, 90% of people think I "actually" work for the cable company and don't realize I'm a contractor.

    I've had two calls today asking me about if I could cut open a trench for them. One guy has a water leak and wants me to cut a trench for that, and another guy wants me to cut one for an electrical line going to a light pole in the back yard.

    That's free money to me man. I love it!! I always tell em...."Well, let me look at it at and I'll give you a price. I'm rather cheap just cause I figure we'll both come out good on it. I should be chargin $2.50 per foot, but I usually charge about $1.50 - $2.00 per foot. It usually depends on how cool the person is. Personality goes along way with me man.

    Anyways, just me keepin it on the cheap side tommorrow...I'm hopin to make roughly $350 - $400 just for three hours of work tops. That's not real work time per se, that's just me bein away from the house for three hours.

    It's just like my mama told me when I quit college.... She said "well son, the world needs a ditch digger too".

    I'm going to do a side job tomorrow, but it will take me half a day to make $87.
    I guess it's those extra years of college kickin' in.

    I love getting paid under the table! I work on other peoples farms for cash all the time, school money piles up quick when the tax man can't get a hold of it at all.

    I got paid $60 tonight to play some loud rock n' roll and move equipment. Plus I drank for free, so I saved money. Can't beat it.

    I used to do a lot of side computer jobs, my boss would charge 90$/hr so I would do it for a discount for direct payment to me. Some customers even gave me username/passwords for porn sites, bonus :-)

    I did a toothpaste television commercial here two months ago. Lot of fun, and I was cast opposite a 22 year old Brazilian model.

    I played a dentist who shows up unexpectedly in her bathroom

    It actually was; the first few seconds were for the ad and then they sent Jonny home and brought in an actor more suited for the job.

    ...and that's why i love playing out!

    If the choice is between going out and playing a bunch of music and coming in at 2 AM exhausted but with a smile on your face or sitting around at home and watching "The Lord Of The Rings" on DVD for the umpteenth time and falling asleep on the couch....

    ....I must be getting old. The second option is starting to sound pretty good to me.

    Ya, this winter I'd like to do a couple side jobs for some extra cash.

    I need an extra two grand for a couple of serious woodworking machines.

    If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.

    If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.

    If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.

    Hey, I resemble that comment. Cheeky sod

    Actually she's touring the world with her boyfriend, both modeling their way around. There are quite a few Brazilians here doing that.
