Episode 2: Greenhorns: That's pretty much 100 percent what a Floorhand will be doing. They captured it well! Smile And as mentioned since rigs are Non-Union, the driller can send you home whenever for whatever reason. Move to slow, send ya home! You get your pay check and that's that. Come late more than once, BAM driller sends you away. Service rigs gotta hit their drilling quotas and the driller gets his bonus by running a tight team.

I got harassed for wearing my face mask one time, one driller told me, "I gotta warn you right now, it's -20, it ain't that cold, some drillers will send you home if they can't see your face clearly."

-20 is STILL cold to me! Tongue
