Wanna bet? If you put half of the effort into speaking proper English and being humble as you do into trying to prove you are God's gift to carpentry you would be a much better person.

Dunning–Kruger effect....
It doesn't take a Cornell study to sum up what the result of this phenomena is.
Simply put......

Problem with dunnig krueger effect in my case is that I did worked for 3 high end companies for 6 years like trimmer. Btw here is one guy that I worked at his project for short time. He was GC. If I will notice him again I will ask him to say what he think about my trim skills.

Just some racing pigeon that come out of blue and jump at my head and bite my ears for 5 hours straight from some reason. He have numbers at legs. I save myself from him when I give him to children next door to hold and jump in my truck and run away. He is from Pennsylvania get in storm and get tired and decided to relax annoying locals.
