Although Jaime studied chemistry at the college at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, When asked, he will tell you that he prefers plumbing; and he quotes Albert Einstein,”If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.”
“I have the benefit of working for a company that gives me the independence and the opportunity to use my training and skills to help real people, and to do it at the highest level possible. That way, I have a high degree of job satisfaction and can sleep at night with a clear consciense. Unless there is an emergency call at 1 a.m. Then I do the call, and sleep with a clear conscience later.” – Jaime Smith
