    how to lose your man card in the blink of an eye

    Yesterday I was installing some service from the nations largest communications company. While doing a walk around survey of this lady's house, it turns out to be some old stone facade that you can't drill through. I started to realize I needed to go into a crawlspace, which I only do as a last resort. I was grumbling to myself about having to put on a Tyvek suit and get dirty. Luckily for myself, before I moaned to the young lady about not wanting to have to do in there, I spotted a US Marine sticker on the back of her car so I assumed that she was a Marine. Then I saw the pic of her husband in his uniform on the mantel, and luckily a brain cell fired correctly and I told myself you better not even think of whining or complaining about a crawlspace to a Marine or his wife. So I didn't and gladly HD to go in there 3 different times.

    Thank a soldier or vet!

    I feel your pain on a regular basis. In my job I get to crawl around in truck scale pits along with whatever has decided to make it its home.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    I've never had my "Man Card" revoked, but it has been suspended on several occasions.

    Just suck it up buttercup.. I made my living by doing electrical work on older homes and spent my share of time in crawl spaces with all kinds of critters. That is why I have 2 bad knees..

    I was working in a crawlspace while installing baseboard hot water heat in a old farmhouse.......the room was a converted front porch so I had to lay on my back and crawl through basement window opening to access it. I reached for what I thoughtwas my pry bar.....it slitherd away.........I couldn't run,jump or do anything but curse loudly. Fortunately it was just a black snake, not a poisonous one and it crawled away. .
