Oil prices fall to five-year low; 250,000 jobs at stake in 8 states

Posted on December 29, 2014 | By Houston Chronicle

We were humming right along and all of a sudden it came to a stop. What happened?

Why did Oil drop? Why did we start stacking Rigs? Why are we still buying foreign Oil?

That really pisses me off!

Does it seem like the older you get the more shit just gets under your skin or have you always just been that way. Here are a few things that really piss me off!
  1. You go to a Restaurant, ask to be seated in that nice quiet looking booth in the corner. Next the waitress sets some prick next to you that goes to working million dollar deals on his cell phone.
  2. You walk up to fast food place to get a bacon egg and cheese biscuit. You're behind a person, their cell phone rings and they begin to bullshit about their  life story.
  3. You pull into super mart and park your nice new vehicle away from everybody. There are fifty empty spots around you. You go in, you come out and some sob is parked one on the driver side and one on the passenger side and you need a damn can opener to get in your truck. This really pisses me off to no end. 
  4. Being Late for any event because you are waiting on someone else. Could include wife, husband or friend.
  5. You are driving down the Interstate and some chicken shit passes you about 30 feet before the exit and takes the exit. Why couldn't they have just waited one minute.
  6. A guy smoking a cigarette right next to a butt can and throws it on the ground. People close to a trash can and just throw a bag of trash out in the parking lot.
  7. You go into a store and you just think about asking for help. They scatter like cock roaches when the light comes on.
  8. Most public company's now don't have a phone number listed for any help or services to their customers. They all want you to go to there help page where a damn robot computer will answers your question.
  9. You call a Company. Say what it is you need. I am sorry please speak plain. I need a f&^% customer rep! I am sorry I did not hear you. You %%^^^&&*544345677889866 piece of shit. Oh no you didn't just cut me off.


How Dangerous Is Our Industry?

Occupational Safety & Health Administration
From 2003 to 2010, 823 oil and gas extraction workers were killed on the job-a fatality rate seven times greater than the rate for all U.S. industries

How safe are we? Has the Industry changed and become a safer place to work. I still have to tell at least 5 people a day to put on their safety glasses.  I catch guys on a regular basis without fall protection or secondary fall protection. No work permit and on & on.
