    You Might Be A Welder If:

    You've been fixing a crack in a friends transmission bellhousing overhead, before feeling the wonderful sensation of molten aluminum brush past your genitals.

    You've finished a weld on the roll cage you were fitting to a miata, before squirming around like a worm on a fish hook, trying to get the spatter out of your welding leathers.

    You've ever been set on fire from grinding sparks, after finishing your welds unscathed.

    You look like you changed skin colors after grinding all your welds flush with the base.

    You can no longer go to a car show because you tear the welds on the displays apart more than you look at the cars.

    You forget that you are on a time limit at the library, and almost miss posting this.

    YMBAWI---you pick up a new striker and chipping hammer every trip to the LWS and then when you can't get the seat to move in the truck you find the last ones!!

    YMBAWI-if you use the OA torch to find your soap stone that "must have fell out of your pocket behind the steel rack?

    YMBAWI---if you use the cup and cork off your stanley as a plasma cutter guide!

    YMBAWI----If you were offered a job as a beach lifequard and you turn it down cause you have a Fab job that you started and you are determined to finish!!

    YMBAWI : You break for lunch. You don't remember putting ketchup on that sandwich in your hand. Then you casually realize that your bleeding again.

    Good one Tom!

    It reminds me of when I was twisting wrenches and we used to say you could always tell a Mechanic as he always washed up before he went to the stall! The evidence of poor hygene was when you put your shorts in the Laundry tub!

    I smiled as I read that one !! But I laughed like a fool when I got to the hat part.

    BTW : The wife wants to know why there is rust on our bran spanking new toilet. She said that she was unaware that porcelain would rust. So I had to tell her that it wont but the metal particles from the grinder will. After a close look she has proved to me that the little particles even etch themselves into the porcelain.

    My only response was ( I thought I was suppose to wash up after i pee ) , she didnt think that was funny at all.

    YMBAWI----you come in late from the shop, wife is alread in bed, lights out, so you slip into the bathroom, brush your teeth, strip and hit the hay! Wake up at 0 dark 30 to the wife screams when she looks at you and your answere is "WTF" is wrong??? she says get out of my bed and look at yourself!!! You check the mirror and realize you are still covered with grinding dust, smoke and you still have your favorite welding hat on!

    What do you mean GOT from the kitty box? If my cat would of seen my welds, he would have taken them to the box himself and buried them DEEP! Then dumped on them. No chance of them seeing daylight again soon!

    Hmmmmm well lets see if this is as funny as I thought it was. I was in the hardware store going to buy a hoe the other day. While looking a it I hadn't noticed the price and I then looked at it and said for the price of this flimsy thing I can make one that will last 10 times longer than this so I whipped out my camera phone got some pictures of it I then told my wife lets go she said wheres you hoe I said I didn't get it she said let me guess you have another reason to stay in the barn, use up welding supplys, and go buy more of them???? all just to make a 10 dollar hoe I said yeah pretty much she just shook her head and rolled her eye's .
