RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Not really. The goal is to get away with it, so you really have to plan things out. Takes time. Lots of leg work and surveillance beforehand and it's often boring work. And, you have to dig the shallow grave first. The ground is very cold in the winter and it's like digging through concrete.

Sure, the killing part is cool, and everyone is impressed when I put "hit man" down as occupation, but like any job it can get old. And, there are no benefits or retirement plan.

AND the hours are all over the place too! It can get messy...and Patrick was turned down by the producers of "Dirty Jobs" more than once. It's just a tough line of work!
