I'm not sure why you would get the impression that I was trying to brag about working hard, first of all. That's not something you really brag about. "Oh man, I'm such a slave to my employer, you should all be more like me".
Second, if you were going to do so, I don't know why it would make sense to do it by comparing yourself to ski patrol. I'm not saying ski patrol is the easiest job ever by any stretch of the imagination, but it's not some off-the-charts insane thing where you're grinding it out for 14 hours a day. My point is that there are plenty of barbacks and landscapers and janitors and roofers who have equally tough jobs as your average ski patroller. Though there are obviously different jobs within ski patrol and the job would be completely different at Revelstoke as opposed to Blue Mountain.
All I was saying is I don't think Evan is necessarily right since for all I know some kid works as a dishwasher in a super busy pub 5 nights a week. Either way it was just an offhanded comment and not worth having a huge debate over.
