I think its just the society we live in Paddy. I know that when I got hired at the fire dept it was like a right of passage to be picked on by the older guys. They never did anything to harm me just clean fun. Once they sold a big screen tv I didn't even own man I got calls on that thing for a month. My wife still laughs about that. Some of us at work still play jokes on each other but for the most part it's the older ones doing it. We now have to make it clear if you want to play you can but if your going to get your feelings hurt or run and tell the chief you cant play. Needless to say many can't play. And whats really sad is I'm 36 and have twenty years to go. I won't be able to have any fun by the time I retire lol.
Originals only I'm not a decorator. Always looking for Simpson oil, Super A, and MFA oil cans and globes. Shawn Morris
No reason why we cant have fun like that again Paddy. People just cant take things so serious all the time. If everyone would remeber why they got in this hobby and stop worring about the money all the time they could start having fun again. Whenever I see you, Maurice, Lonnie, Jarvis, Aaron, Roger, and a few others I always have a good time. Because I no its not about the money its about having a good time and sharing this hobby.
your right Shawn...too many new members wear their feelings on their shoulders...remember how everyone use to hammer me on my shirts? It was fun!!!
S932...ditto. Lots of great guys in the hobby! Paddy...I always liked your shirts!! They make you easy to spot in a crowd!
