You you know who you are. Doings things with your hands that most men cant. Wearing steel hats or steel toed shoes. Painting. Hammering. Plumbing. Working your ass off 9-5 everyday no matter what it is that you do. Getting really good at it but barely getting by? Blood..sweat..and tears... 9-5. Hard working men.. we've got it all on the line. Come friday night, we party hard; Smoking.. drinking.. rollin.. trippin.. whatever it is that we damn well please. We live in a fucked up society..one that prides itself on capitalizing on peoples emotions, weaknesses, promises, blood and sweat. Anyways.. this thread is dedicated to all the hard working men/women out there. Those of us who have done, or are doing on a daily basis, the dirty jobs and hard work that keep this country running. Honestly, IMO, there is nothing more gratifying than doing hard labor and working with my hands. I love it. I know guys with MBAs that work for Fortune 500 companies and cant even properly put up a picture frame in their room or instal a door, paint a wall, hammer a nail...I laugh. These thoughts just came right off the top of my head so im sorry if it doesnt flow well. "The pride of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand." - Vince Lombardi Keep your heads up. Keep working hard. Be thankful for the things you have cause you've worked your ass off for them. Give yourself a pat on the back. You and I may not be the fittest but we sure as hell have survived. Dont EVER let someone tell you what you should be doing with your life. Live the life you love. This thread is dedicated to you.. the hard working man/women.
