you notice that people at the grocery store are laughing at you because your socks and shoes are "pink", from popping red chalklines all day!

You know that you're a framer when you mix up you're and your =)

Or when you have to roll out a 100' extension cord just for your radio.

You know you are a framer when you have 6 posts in the "round vs. clipped" thread.

You know you are a framer when you say, "get the adjuster" and someone brings you a 10 pound maul.

You know you are a framer when you develop bald patches in your leg hair from pulling off dried subfloor adhesive.

You know you're a framer if you have waffle marks on your trimwork.:w00t:

You know your a framer when: You can count by 16" all the way to 24'.

woodworkbykirk 01-22-2010 05:52 PM

you can lean a 16' 2x10 up against the wall and climb it to get up to your top plates from the outside of the house

you carry a large bottle of red chalk in your toolbelt

order gun spikes by the pallet

YKYAF when you can touch your palms to the floor without bending your knees.

Knees? You still got knees?

My knees are only used to forecast the weather!

You know you are a framer when one hand has GI Joe kung fu grip from holding the framing gun.

WallMonkey 01-22-2010 07:13 PM

You know that your a framer when...
you work on your truck and keep turning bolts in the wrong direction.

:blink:

loneframer 01-22-2010 07:22 PM

YKYAF when a pair of Carhardtt jeans with no stains or rips are considered your "good clothes".:thumbup:

oldfrt 01-22-2010 07:29 PM

When that 2" sliver in your hand is just a toothpick for after lunch,
cause the your calluses are a 1/4" thick.

The smell of freshly cut wood seems a bigger rush than your wife's perfume.

You can cut with one eye open till the sawdust works itself out the other one.

A pencil that stays sharp for more than 5 marks is a brand you'll remember.

WallMonkey 01-22-2010 07:40 PM

You know that you're a framer when...

you've ate your lunch with an H2.5

:huh:

Warren 01-22-2010 07:42 PM

I have eaten pudding using a cedar shim on more than one occasion.

Kent Whitten 01-22-2010 07:43 PM

Alright, I'll chime in.

You know you're a framer when your feet and ass are glow in the dark white, yet your back and legs are just as tan as can be.

Makes for funny finger pointing at the swim hole.

You also have raccoon eyes from wearing sunglasses in the sun.

And plastic from the collation strip in your boots.
