I am in a managment position at a company that manages concrete products. THESE same bums get a job here for 1 day and quit b/c the work is too hard. Now our govt is hitting my pockets even harder to pay for these mouth breathers health care. I wouldnt cross the street to piss on one of the turds we call polticans if they were on fire. I am fed up and I know more people like me are getting sick of it.
Can you do the job that you are asking these people to do? I started with nothing myself. I would go offshore and work for six months at a time until I saved enough money to buy land and control my own destiny. But I was very athletic. I could pick up a piece of drill stem pipe and throw it in the air. At the time hydraulics were not used to thread the pipe together. A man had to throw a 1/2" chain hard enough to make it wrap around the pipe. Then a winch pulled the chain threading the pipe together.
I have heard the suits talk about how lazy people working on the derrick were. I have also seen these same people try to move a piece of drill stem pipe. It was hilarious. I will leave it at that...
