Do you scare easily or are you all calm and collected in moments of stress?

    If it's something that happens quick I'm fine, if it's something I have to think about beforehand, I'm a mess.

    Unless it is a midget or clown I'm solid. I have dealt with some fucked up shit......at some point I adapted I guess.

    oh, funny you ask. So I have to use my torch to remove a fitting off a piece of copper drain pipe right where the pipe comes through the floor above me. I'm like, oh shit, this is dangerous as fuck, I better get my spray bottle of water and soak all the surrounding wood so I don't light the local politician's daughter's house on fire...

    When the wife's water broke on Monday, 5 weeks premature, we were both chill. She hopped in the shower, I changed the sheets, we packed and rolled out. :cool:

    I did take the liberty of doing 100 on the way to the hospital though because I had a good excuse :jj:

    So I get the fitting off, wipe away the residual solder, spray everything down again with water, and get going on putting in the new PVC drain. I work a little while and then I run out to the truck for some more fittings and I smell smoke. I quick turn around and look at the house and I see smoke billowing from the back of the house above where I was working. I immediately went like this:

    I was mowing the lawn with head phones on and my neighbor came up behind me to tell me something and I cold cocked him. Another time, some little migrant worker attempted to touch my legs in the toy section of walmart from behind and I turned around and kicked him so hard in the shin...growing up with abusive (yet loving) older brothers really took a toll I guess.

    Then I ran around the back of the house and there was smoke everywhere but it didn't look like it was coming from the roof. Then I realized one of the neighbor's just decided to start burning some branches and shit and I folded in half with relief. Like hands on the knees, folded in half going all, holy fuck that scared the fucking shit out of me.

    I think I may have broken the customer's rickety old gate trying to get around the back of the house. :facepalm:

    i'm usually ok in a crisis as long as i can see what needs to be done. if there's no immediately visible way to resolve it or reduce the impact i just shut down.

    I almost torched a couple of houses but I was able to frantically put he fires out before they spread. Worst thing is a lot of the times I'm torching in tight spots I have the water turned off.

    This one time I used the glass of soda the customer gave me but it kept burning so I took the lid off the toilet tank and scooped water out with the soda glass to douse the flames.
