You know that your a framer when...

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 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.

you carry a large bottle of red chalk in your toolbelt

order gun spikes by the pallet

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

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

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.

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.
