That's because house painters paint houses, and carpenters.....carpent, professors talk a lot, and mechanics.. charge for tyre pressure checks.
In their SPARE time some (professors) get their hands dirty, house painters enjoy actual arse sitting, carpenters love Monopoly, and mechanics just have to take apart the carby on the lawnmower and lament the solid rubber wheels.

Bloody good job drewprof! - that's a really nice home you are making for all your lovely family!.
