We are always talking about this one white pencil I once had. It went for a couple days before it needed to be sharpened.

Or you get a bad batch and you know your lumberyard just ordered a million of them
So you stop in and go on and on about how bad their pencils are while they look at you like you are mentally ill

YKYAF when you go on a diet when you start to not fit though a 14 1/2" opening with your bags on.

You spend your lunch break "operating" on yourself using your utility knife removing splinters.

YKTYAF when a chunk of scaffolding falls off, cracks you in the head, splits it wide open, and your buddy is shaving your head off so he can put the butterfly bandaids on so you don't have to take time off from work.

And no...this is not me.

Kent, if that was to happen on one of the jobs I work on, his head would've had an inappropriate message carved in it, while prepping for the butterflies.

Re: You Know That You're A Framer When...


You have a groove in your thumbnail from scribing osb.. You excitedly yell LET ME GET IT!! when one of your kids has a splinter... somebody can complain of most any kind of serious pain and you reply " hmmm thats how I have felt for the last 15 years... isnt that normal??" Your boots smell like a cat pee'd in them.. You can get at least a week out of your winter clothes without washing by rotating the layers... You have made actual eating utensils with a skill saw... you have developed the ability to be able cut a straight line even when your eyes are completely full of sawdust... You know what a "not-a-step" is and are quite comfortable on one... You have enough clothes in your truck to handle anything from arctic to island... You can usually find a snack or two and a soda somewhere in your backseat... You have one shoulder with crazy hair patterns from years of toting plywood.... in the summer you have a bald spot on one leg from your hammer handle rubbing off the hair... you have had post traumatic stress after visiting a particularly bad porta-let ... You have had to have your wife remove a splinter from your a$$ ...


I could go on and on

YKYAFW


On a very hot day, you have drank the melted ice water from the bottom of your dirty cooler.

What? Just me?
