I'm usually as chill as fuck at all times but today I freaked out and went all
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.
So what happened today?
Calm as fuck in an emergency but don't sneak up on me...my fight or flight response is on point.
I'll pay you to fight me.
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.
I did take the liberty of doing 100 on the way to the hospital though because I had a good excuse
Sneak up on me and it's for free
Grabbed the alcohol bottle instead?
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'm cool about really bad shit and a pussy about dumb shit.
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.
If I run into you I'll just wave
I think I may have broken the customer's rickety old gate trying to get around the back of the house.
Ugh. Fire bad medicine.
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.
