fappomatic: Make sure your gutters are in good shape so the blood won't streak your siding.

Gutters should be fine.  I just want the roof properly sealed before they go all The Good, The Bad and The Ugly on each other.

Ker_Thwap: electricjebus: Ker_Thwap: Mentally ill man is mentally ill.  Psychosis is real.  Don't taunt people driving a 4,000 pound car, don't taunt people with guns, don't taunt people then hand them your circular saw.

He pbviously wasn't being drugged "to work more," but getting high at lunch is likely part of the job site culture. There are links between psychosis and weed.  It's unclear if psychotics gravitate towards weed, or weed has some likelihood of causing psychotic episodes in certain people.  Either way, it's probably best not to taunt stoners and then hand them a circular saw.

No, I'm not trying to cause a devil weed scare, it's just something that concerns me personally, because a family member is having a problem with an ex boyfriend who replaced his meds with weed, and is having psychotic episodes.  He's convinced that she killed his cat (the cat is alive.)

I used to be a carpenter in St. Louis.  Construction workers talk shiat on each other all day long.  Obviously you don't punch down and don't hit people where they're insecure *eg if a fat guy isn't comfortable with his weight you don't make fun of him for it*.  It's just part of the culture and a way to pass time.  The people that don't talk shiat back are off limits and if they're not laughing at your insults move on to another category etc...

As for the drugs part, I suspect uppers, not pot.  I wasn't in residential construction for long, but pretty much everybody I dealt with that came over to commercial later in their careers had at least one story of a foreman making coke or meth available to their workers.

I suspect this was a lunatic who took offense at the occasional joke at his expense after doing a bunch of meth on his first break.  It's an educated guess based on my experience as a construction worker in the area... and, ya know, the fact that he went at a coworkers face with a circular saw.

I was only an unpaid construction worker, helping my buddy build a top floor on his house, renovati ...


Heh, productivity doesn't matter that much when your boss isn't paying you $40 an hour *including benefits* in a very competitive market.  Also, construction workers have to deal with drug tests.

When I was a newbie I was doing structural framing on a big job-site.  I was working up high and a saw about a dozen men running to their trucks without their tool belts on them.  I later climbed down for lunch break and discovered that they were doing random drug tests that day.

The runners' foremen gave them a heads up and they left before the testers arrived and called in sick for a couple days.  Pot ain't out of your system in 3 days.

That was in 2003 and the profit margins are a lot higher in commercial construction.

Col. Gathers: Farking Canuck: Do not read the comments. Typical Fox deplorables.

I was curious why, aside from the gruesome nature, this would make front page news on fox.....

*reads article*

Oh Mexicans, that's why.


You don't think murders should be front page news unless they're gruesome? This is how you know your crime rate is waaaaaay too high.

All joking aside, I once dated a Mexican import who was racist as all hell against Mexican men. She explained it to me that they're romantic until shiat gets real (her exact words). Her Dad spoke perfect English and filled me in on the story about her exes being complete assholes in private. Her Mom had tried to express her disdain, but lacked the English words so it came out in the most colorful Spanglish I've ever heard. I feel fortunate to have been able to understand her. I learned maybe a quarter of the Spanish words and over half of the grammar I know from LatinaLover's Mom.

/ It's not every day a Mexican girl has blue eyes. I miss her.
// Actually, she just got divorced. Hmm..

A. Roofers are universally crazy, siders are farking nuts, and window installers arr mostly insane.  I sell materials to these people every day.  They are all psychotics, liars, and scammers.  A very small few of them too good work too.

This. I did, too... for way too long. Changed careers and now I'm in IT. Funny thing. Mainframe operators are universally crazy. Sys admins are narking futs and desktop support staff don't live in the same universe as the rest of us.

I should've stayed in building products. At least I'd get outdoors more.


Lol. If I had any real, usable skills, I would change careers.  The reality is working a counter at a supply center is the most money I've ever made, even counting that they took away our commissions last year.  The hours are normal and I get overtime. I've been trying to get into B2B outside sales, but my wife is super leery of me having risk in income (she stays at home with our kids and tutors for cash) and not being home or having to work once home so I can't spend time with our kids.  Hopefully, once our kids are a bit older she will be more open to it, but I'll be in my 40s by then.

yo-yo saw was in the other toolbox...

Generally speaking, you really shouldn't be taunting anyone with power tools. Or tools in general, for that matter.

I mean, forget circular saws or power drills or hammers or whatever. I got a tool that drives nails into cement/concrete/assorted masonry using a (blank or specially designed) .22 cartridge. You want to taunt me if I got that in my hands?

dragonchild: Dammit, I need my roof done and the conversation here has got me farking terrified.


The thing to remember about constructions workers is that any crazy they have tends to manifest towards each other or some outside influence. They're (generally) not going to f*ck with the work site or customers, because that's their paycheck.

I've been doing residential contracting on and off for 15 years, and the biggest factor in work environment or whatever you want to call it is the "work culture" the boss cultivates, intentionally or not. I've worked with groups where everyone was a total f*ck up, but we worked well as a group because the boss was careful to keep us within our strengths. I've also worked with groups where it was a borderline dream team, so to speak, but the group was constantly f*cking up because the boss simply didn't care.
