A word to the wise — breaking up a good-sized patio with a jack-hammer and throwing the heavy chunks into a truck and trailer is not fun work. From last Thursday through last Saturday, I hurled literally around 10 tons (20,000 lbs or around 9000 kg) into my uncle’s truck and trailer. We were breaking up his patio so that construction on expansion to his house could get underway.
Surprising though, I barely got sore at all. More tired than anything. I think that was due to him doing all of the jack-hammering (damn thing is really heavy and vibrates a lot obviously) and me just doing a lot of lifting.
Anyway, I made like $60 outta it (yeah, I shoulda done it for free as he’s my uncle, but I have school bills to pay!) and got to hang out with my pretty cool uncle, so it was worth it. 🙂
