The full version:

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, teach.
Those who can't teach, manage.
Those who can't manage, write .
Those who can't write, write manuals.

And of course, don’t mention it when you want building work done , because it puts the price up.
Ain't that the truth!
In my experience of hiring "trades" it's a fine line. If you plead too much poverty they'll look for any excuse NOT to do the job because they'll think you can't or won't pay. If however you look like you have even fifty quid that you don't need, they'll want it, and use every sly little trick in the book to get it.
