Are you actually a professional painter?

I think he already admitted to being a painter.

Among a lot of other things like postal worker, plumbing, truck driving and DIY home renovations. That does not look like a dedicated painter to me, more a "jack" of anything.

As far as I know, he or she could have a deep knowledge of painting among the other things they describe. I'd hate to come off so arrogant as to presume they don't know anything about painting just because they have several skill sets. I don't know. That's just me.

All I was saying is professional painters paint. There are plenty of multi skilled DIYers out there. That does not make them pros; an avocation, possibly.

Didn't you ever deliver mail on the way home from your painting job?

There's at least three retired painters on this forum. Me included. Are we no longer considered professionals?

I know I am, what about you? When exactly did you retire from painting?

I am not retired, yet. When I am, I will no longer be a painter, I'll be a retiree.

Ah, but you will be a retiree who painted. If one played baseball or football for say 15 years when they hung up their cleats would they just be called a retiree with no mention of the type of work they did for a living?

Would an astronaut, engineer, doctor, lawyer, teacher, police officer, firefighter, butcher, baker, or candlestick maker only be a retiree?

I think what Jennifer is alluding to (if I'm not mistaken):

Was ElkHunter a "Professional Painter" (ie., paid to paint on a regular basis) at one time, or simply a person who "painted" once upon a time a long time ago? ElkHunter could easily clear this up for us.

Well, the impression I got from Jennifer's post was that even if you worked your entire career in one vocation, the minute you retire, your only a retiree!

For all we know ElkHunter is hunkered down in a blind waiting for a huge bull Elk to come sauntering by.

I've been painting from the summer of 1978 to the Spring of 2019, where I recently started a late career as a facility operator. Basically a handyman.

HVAC/R would be considered my main discipline, but that is limited to minor maintenance and trouble shooting. I'm also involved in building systems like life safety and security.

But for some reason, I still manage to get paint on me!

If and when my 22-year-old Kitchen-Aid refrigerator breaks down, I'll give you a call.
