Default It Really Makes Me Angry

Spent time debating a liberal (once fb) friend day. Constant whining about how much people make. I eventually got really angry. I like the money I make because it alows me to sleep with my wife every night. I could make more if I wanted to change that. I don't. I love my life. I got pissed when said person started to tell me oilfield workers are making money to destroy the environment. I got mad. Without destroying something I didn't want to destroy I just walked away. Although said person will never read this here we go.
MFr I have friends that live half their life on a metal island in the gulf away from their family so you can put gas in your car.
I have friends that work on turbines away from their family so you get you electricity.
I have friends that work away from their family welding on pipelines so you can turn your stove on.
Leave my F'Ing friends alone or learn to drill for oil yourself.

Welders, carpenters, electricians, mechanics, oil workers, pipe fitters, cops, fire fighters, emt's, etc. What happens if we all take a year off?

I was in my garage working on my mower about a month ago and some guy from a few houses down comes down and starts making small talk. He seemed friendly enough at first until he found out I was an oil field hand. He started *****ing about the Mercondo incident and how BP had screwed everyone in Louisiana. I'll not repeat what I told him but I'm sure of 2 things now. First he will never come back on my property again and the second is I'm quite sure I'm now known as the neighborhood *******!

Yep. Really gets under my skin when some liberal whacko starts running their mouth when they have no idea what some people sacrifice to earn a living. Especially when they are talking about things that some of my good friends do for a living.

I don't understand why any of these jobs should be praised or thought of more than others??? So what if they live half their life on a metal island...they chose that. They aren't doing anything courageous like serving our country in the armed forces, which is also a personal choice but obviously different than beating ur chest that you work in the oilfield.

If you take a year off, many others that are qualified and willing will quickly step in and all will be fine.

You misunderstand. Yes it's their choice and no it's not anything worth special praise no more than my job is. It's nothing to be looked done upon either. Especially by some tree hugger that talks about how bad oil is for the environment but also keeps pumping fuel into their car.
Told her if she didn't like oil she should sell her car and walk. Lead by example. That did not go over well.lmao

I wasn't necessarily arguing with you, more like venting on one of my pet peeves. If you lived in lafayette you'd understand quickly lol

The oilfield industry is valuable no doubt, if not the most valuable industry in the south. It's the select few that parade around with oil field life stickers spouting off on how noble their profession is that annoy me.

Or build those ridiculous Mustangs.��

If the oilfield is so easy come get you some. Otherwise S T F U and sit on the porch. I'm not saying anyone in this industry is better than anyone else in the world just because of what they do. However, I will say that it takes a certain kind of person to do it and to be successful at it. It's not for everyone. Those who can do it reap the rewards as well we should for supplying a valuable commodity. I will never argue with the surgeon who has the knowledge and skill to save a love ones life over what they should or shouldn't charge for thier service. I certainly can't do what they can and I respect the skill and training their job requires. Along with that comes the salary that is commensurate with the work. Why should one be different from the other?
