A controversial father has revealed what your trade says about your personality.
Bruno Bouchet, from Sydney, ranked 18 types of tradies from best to worst, with bricklayers and painters taking out the top spots while plumbers languish at the bottom of the scale for ‘ripping off’ customers.
‘The 100 per cent accurate tradie power rankings. Don’t bother commenting, this isn’t up for discussion,’ the self-proclaimed ‘list king’ wrote on Instagram, adding his plasterer friend helped him compile his amusing list.

The radio personality ranked 18 types of tradies from best to worst, with bricklayers and painters taking out the top spots while plumbers languish at the bottom of the scale for ‘ripping off’ customers
Bricklayers and painters awarded the coveted top spot in the ‘God tier’ category, along with renderers, tradies who apply a layer of plaster or cement on a wall.
With the ‘toughest job on any site’, Bruno said in his tongue-in-cheek post he has a lot of ‘respect’ for bricklayers because they ‘spend their entire wages on pokies and drugs’.
He explained painters are ‘always larger-than-life migrants’ who you ‘instantly feel comfortable calling brother’.
Bruno believed all renderers ‘drink on the job yet their work is the most noticeable’ and they are ‘appreciated of any other trade’.
Concreters and carpenters were featured in the second-best ‘royalty tier’, alongside earthworkers and boilermakers.
Bruno said he believed concreters carry out ‘back-breaking’ work ‘effortlessly’ with a ‘lit ciggie’ in one hand, while carpenters are the ‘most skilled of all tradies’ who ‘invented the wolf-whistle’.
He described earthworkers [tradies who carry out excavation or construction of earth embankments] as ‘solid guys’ but are ‘incredibly perverted’.
The radio personality said boilermakers [tradespeople who cut, shape, assemble and weld steel to construct and repair metal work] are ‘silent achievers’.
‘Never met a boilermaker that was a d***head,’ he said.
ADAM SANDLER TIER
In the centre of his rankings, Bruno put tilers, plasterers, carpet layers and mechanics in the ‘Adam Sandler tier’, or what he describes as the middle ground of ‘take it or leave it’.
He described tilers as ‘man babies’ who can never take the ‘smallest amount of criticism’ while carpet layers ‘work the quickest’ but ‘they also smell the worst’.
Bruno said plasterers [tradies who apply plaster to walls, ceilings, or other structures] have the ‘lowest IQ of all tradies’.
‘For some reason they bring their own microwave to work,’ he joked.
While mechanics ‘never’ have anything ‘interesting or relevant magazines’ for customers to read while waiting for their cars in the waiting room.
In his tongue-in-cheek post, Bruno said he believed plumbers ‘make it out like they’re elbows-deep in s*** all day, but the reality is they’re mostly ripping off the elderly to fix a leaking tap’
The ‘pleb’, also known as the second-lowest tier, consisted of roofers, labourers, landscapers and handymen.
Bruno said he believed roofers [tradies who construct or repairs roofs] are ‘all dead s***s’ who listen to Triple J [government-funded radio station] and they f*** up a job ‘50 per cent of the time’.
Out of all tradies, the dad said labourers [tradies who do a lot of hard physical work in factories and on building sites] are the ‘ones that’ll demolish your toilet the worst’.
He labelled landscapers as ‘glorified gardeners’ who ‘always misquote jobs and end up robbing you blind’, while customers can never rely on a handyman because they ‘always end up having to call someone else to fix up whatever they wrecked’.
CAT VOMIT TIER
Builders, plumbers and electricians stood at the bottom of the barrel in the ‘cat vomit’ tier.
Bruno claimed builders are ‘all glorified project managers’ while electricians are ‘white-collar tradies who never get dirty’.
‘Their tools look like they literally just bought them that morning. Also – they’re all nerds who struggle to maintain a conversation,’ he said.
While he accused plumbers of ‘making it out like they’re elbows-deep in s*** all day, but the reality is they’re mostly ripping off the elderly to fix a leaking tap’.
