A French Quarter woman has today been given some thinking to do, after realising that the thought of dating a tradie was probably a lot better than the reality of it.
Theo Howard  is said to have announced to her girlfriends that her ideal husband would be a tradesman, coming to the conclusion that all tradies were loveable larrikins who would not only make her laugh but could also fix shit around the house (which may have been prompted by the ultimate PR guys for tradies, the Inspired Unemployed).
Despite coming from a predominantly white collar family, Theo says she just doesn’t see herself vibing with any type of bloke that works indoors.
“Tradies just seem more down to earth”, she explains, “not to mention they earn a fair bit of coin.”
“What’s not to love?”
Not knowing much about the drinking and gambling culture that is common amongst those who work hard and play hard, Theo says she’d been pretty much ready to stake out the timber aisle at Bunnings, when her friend had informed her that dating a tradesmen would likely involve getting woken up at the crack of dawn every day.
“I couldn’t think of anything worse than having Triple M radio go off at 5am everyday.”
“Fuck there’s always something isn’t there.”
More to come.
