I got into an argument with my boyfriend and he got upset when I said teaching tennis wasn't considered manual labor. I'm aware that it takes skill to do it and that it's not a desk job but when I think manual labor I think plumbing, electrion, farming, etc. He was very offended but I don't think I'm wrong. Thoughts?
