Have you ever wanted to be a lumberjack, a construction worker, a contractor, a plumber, an electrician or any trade related job of the construction industry? Well, you’ll need to know some phrases to let others in the trade know you are the real deal. These are time sensitive so use them soon & often. They are as follows:
“It’ll turn around.”
“It’s pickin up”
“It’s getting better”
“It’s a hot one”
“Hot enough for you?"
“Workin hard or hardly workin?"
“How ya’ll makin it?"
“Ya’ll stayin pretty busy?"
“I heard dat”
“I’ll take it any way I can get it”
“Got any work?”
“I’ve seen it like this before and it always comes back.”
"It will definitely be ready Thursday or at the latest Friday, but may be tomorrow."
“You might as well go ahead and build now; cause it’s not getting any cheaper”
Two termites walk into a bar and ask, "Is the bartender here?"
"I can cut a piece of wood in half just by looking at it. It’s true, I saw it with my own eyes"
"I used to be a drill operator, but it was boring."
"I watched a documentary about how they fix steel girders together last night. Riveting!"
"Marble is a valuable building material and should not be taken for granite."
If you are ever having a bad day remember that in the movie The Sixth Sense Bruce Willis found out he was dead and was still going to work.
If you ever strap anything down always remember to test the tension by slapping or strumming the strap followed by the phrase "That ought to hold her" or it will not work.
I had some more construction jokes, but I'm still working on them.
