    re talking to work?

    I have to agree with Monte on this one,Sure i may hum a tune while im under my mask but i am usually too focused on what im doing to let my mind wander.when 95% of the welding you do is x rayed then youll know what im talking about.(i would suggest a better respirator or maybe ventilate your work area better lol till then take care

    I talk to my work and my machine all the time. The guys in ag with me all think i'm crazy. some of them have even learned a few new words from being around me. They have also learned to get back when i call something a stubborn SOB and pull out the big hammer or the torch cause the end result usually ain't pretty.

    LMAO!! I wish I could have seen that.

    Never been caught talking to anything ,but I did get caught physically abusing a pin out of a man lift arm with a 10 lb. hammer that turned into torcher by a victor wrench. After a cooling off period were back together again giving me the lift I need.

    I wish my tools gave a dam about that!

    I don't even speak harshly to my work even when things are going bad......as long as I don't forget my medication, heheh. If I do forget them for a couple of days everyone is asking did you take your pills today.

    I verbally abuse my metal too sometimes, but I have been trying to stop. I've been going to a metal abuse support group. stop the abuse! if your abusing your metal support groups will be held on tuesdays and thursdays.
    But why? It keeps me from verbaly abusing the nimrods around me.
