That wasn't the question. Which is more important to you?
When you're on the interstate, a capable driver behind the wheel of the truck that's coming up behind you.
Or, when you're in a bar, do you want a capable bartender pouring your beer.
Who gives a ****? That may be your question but that's not what we're talking about. You have made reference several times to Taint's ability to make a living without a marketable skill.
Taint's skills allow him to make a better living than most truck drivers. Why? Because the ability to be a good bartender is more rare than the ability to be a good truck driver and, therefore, fetches a higher price in the labor market.
