We're in a suburban, cookie-cutter home and looking for ways we can set up a less consumer-y lifestyle in the midst of "Pleasant Valley Sunday" middle-class monotony. We're not planning to go full-bore with the permie lifestyle, but we definitely want to apply these principles in much of our daily life. If we can grow our own food and sell enough produce to make a few months' mortgage payments each year, we'll be happy.
We might talk.

I was a truck driver for 5 years, and I work as a dispatcher now. With all due respect to your wife, Katie wouldn't make a dime working a truck stop. She looks too good; the truckers would all assume she's an undercover cop. There's more than one reason we call them "lot lizards".

I'm (just) enough of a gentleman to refrain from brainstorming possible ways to accomplish this reframing, that's all on you... Efficiency is a great buzzword!
I wish you luck with this dreadful challenge, and can only hope you are able to rise to the occassion.
Glad you found a little humor in it. Katie, not so much.
Perhaps if I had not mentioned she was "averaging just above a woman upon the street, and just under a call girl", she would have been more understanding, but I think comparing is not really good in any shape or form. It puts a sense of value on things, and brings into question "quality".
I say all this with a little laugh; I have been with (3) women in my life, and married each one. I am hardly a "player".
As for employment opportunities, I did mention to Katie a few times when money was tight, a truckstop was not far away. Katie did not find much humor in that suggestion either!
That will deter three of them.
