My first real job was for a heavy highway and bridge construction company. I would run a jackhammer, climb under bridges and do any general labor. I loved that job, outside, great pay and good people around you. Also got my CDL and hydraulics license. I now am an electrician and run my own business. Its definitely more challenging, especially collecting money but its good to be my own boss and electrical work is a better career for me than bridge and highway construction.

So, I'm just wondering, but why would you suddenly need nail clippers at a burger joint, or in the truck for that matter? I can see the need coming up when waiting for a job interview or something, but sitting in the truck, or in a burger joint? WTF

Put some nail clippers on your key ring. Fingernails are the, well, the second dirtiest part of the human body. Third for me, my mind is second.

I can't bite my nails. It give me the chills to do that. Kind of like fingernails on a chalkboard. Just thinking about it creeps me out.

I always have nail clippers, an emery board and tweezers in my car.

Never used an emery board on my nails, but my wife has lost some to a few projects of mine.

Emery boards are cheap. In my opinion, have at them. I have used them for various things, too. Mostly cleaning off the contacts on things that use batteries like flashlights, kids toys, etc.

My favorite scent is burnt powder. There is nothing in the world that smells better.
