I can't think of a lie to stay at work today! Lol. The more overtime I get, the less the girlfriend can complain about dumping money into a brand new car.

It all depends on what a 15 hour work shift entails. If you're swinging a sledgehammer turning big rocks into small rocks, then yes, that's rough. If it's office work, then it's kind of whatever. You are going to be awake for that long anyways, might as well be getting paid for it. I, personally, do not feel that any job that can be accomplished sitting down can really be considered hard work or punishment.

Who is inside?
**** idk the last time I worked inside.

Just bc it's our company doesn't mean I sit on my ***, I'm out in the heat 100+ hours every week, Christmas, thanksgiving. Oilfield is a life, not for everyone. And being a business owner adds to it

That is very true. I meant no disrespect by my comment, nor was I discrediting anyone's job or livelihood. I just have heard so many people refer to their desk job as hard work, and it makes me giggle a little on the inside. Because if they think that is hard, then an honest day's work would probably kill them.

Oh I know that bud. I was responding more in a asking vs telling. Again hard to interpret on the Internet lol.

I know what you mean though. My dad's friend owns a different company than us. And his son sits on his *** everyday lol

I work at one of the nation's largest refineries as an engineer, and if I could make my same salary and have the same opportunities working in the field instead of the office, I'd do it in a heartbeat. You can say that my job is not as "hard" as the field guys but honestly I would much prefer the "harder" work...

There is something both satisfying and rewarding about good hard work. It's not for everyone, though. Some people are literally incapable of doing anything physically demanding without b!tching about it. They are infuriating to work with. But if you get a good crew that can crack jokes and still work like mules, then the field job is going to be the more gratifying choice. It's all about the company you keep. Give me the right group of guys to work with and I can truly enjoy just about any job.

Yep. And I sit in an office all day with no human contact. I think after this project is up in 2 years I may go try LWD where you're a field engineer on a rig..

Yea I totally agree with you on that, I do warehouse and office work. They say an office job is more mentally draining while obviously the physical job is more physical straining.

"Upgrading" from blue collar to white collar, huh?

Yeah, I would love to build what I design, and I can... not a damn thing stops me from walking out to the production floor and helping with assembly. But I want my own fabrication shop. Design and build custom car parts... and trucks, I'm from Montana, I know a thing or two about some four wheel drive. And I would have a little portion of my shop set up for gunsmithing and airsmithing, like I said, I'm from Montana (I like to shoot).

An airsmith is the paintball marker version of a gunsmith. I dig on some paintball action, as well.

But, until I get the experience and professional network required to even consider starting my own business, I am stuck here... not really stuck, I am a mechanical drafter for ISSPRO, I design fuel senders and aftermarket gauges.

Welcome to the forums, Judge.

And nitrous isn't cheating at all. But bottles are definitely for babies.

Don't get me wrong, I would have a lot of fun with nitrous. But I appreciate power you don't have to refill. I don't like meth either. I think it's a temporary fix to a permanent problem. I think that injecting windshield washer fluid into your intake is jerry-rigged fix to not properly setting up your supercharger system. And I look at nitrous as not properly setting up your naturally aspirated engine.

That's just my opinion on those two little subjects. And since I have convinced myself that my opinion always matters and that everyone around me always loves to hear it, I figured I would share that with you.

Every mustang I have owned had been supercharged. Untill my 5.0. Nothing is better than a 700hp nitrous coyote. And soon to bee 900 hp coyote with the new kit

I bet that thing is j!zz-in-your-F!cking-pants fun, too. I'm not saying that it's wrong for you to enjoy it. I'm just saying it's not my cut of tea... yet. Who knows? I haven't really ever played with it. I was gathering information about putting a nitrous kit on my CTS, but well, fate had other plans... not that I believe in fate, or destiny, or Jesus, or unicorns... just saying my car got totalled before I could ever put the bottle to it.

Rap, what's your Coyote pushing at the wheels without the spray?

I just feel bad for the guy with the supercharger who lost to someone whose power "isn't always on tap" lol. It obviously worked well in that run!

I don't know why, I just feel that I wouldn't get the same sense of accomplishment using nitrous. That wouldn't keep me from enjoying it, by any means. But you build an 11-second all-motor car, and you want a 9-second car so you hook up some spray. You still have an 11-second car... the car is an 11-second machine.

I don't know what the F!ck I'm talking about. I just don't look at nitrous the same as boost. Boost is mechanical. It's built into the car. For some reason I appreciate that a lot more. You make provisions for boost from the beginning. It seems more thought out. More on purpose. For some reason I always think of nitrous as an after-thought... even if the plan was to use nitrous all along.
