Toughest Job

Just spent the day chipping away clay tiles that were cemented into a basement. Long, tedious, unproductive work. The Sledge didn't work too well since it sent shards flying into the customers' brand new drywall. Hammer and chisel. I am glad there were only 32 tiles, and the rest of the floor was carpet.
What is the most tedious thing you have done?

The point here is to share information, not complaints. It's not a chat room.

And exactly when were you elected as hall monitor? Can you provide a FAQ for this NG that states that? Didn't think so

I don't mean to be harsh, but people should know the basics. Chatting happens, but instigating it as a topic is *not* on-topic. It's not my rules. People read posts with the assumption that they'll be about the topic -- in this case home repair questions and information. If the posts are not relevant then the group serves no purpose and will gradually dissolve.
I posted to Adam Kubias not to be mean but because he appears to mean well. If he were just another anti-social, extreme right-wing political ranter then I wouldn't bother trying to appeal to either reason or courtesy.

I'm not a pro, or even an experienced amateur, but seems to me they shouldnt' have put in new sheetrock before the demolition was done. But people make mistakes all the time.
OTOH, if there had been more to remove, it might have been worth putting up some heavy canvas to stop the shards from hurting it.

I agree that all demolition should take place before any installation.

Cleaning boiler tubes. Firesides and watersides. Couldn't be avoided when I was in the Navy. Tuckpointing my 2-flat. I had the platforms and all. Knew how to mix mortar and all the rest, After doing maybe 100 square feet, I hired it out. I just wasn't cut out for facing a brick wall for hours upon hours. Drove me crazy. I've done plenty of other "tedious" jobs, but those stood out for me.

I find it a lot of work to clear the leaves out of Mom's gutters. After several experiments, power washer with high pressure water did the best.
This year, shovelling snow has been a lot of work. Half way into March, and I've still got two feet or so of snow in the yard, and it's still tough to get in and out of my driveway.
