@Regrann from @bertabarbie - So many have no idea the struggles these men go through at work. The long days and extreme weather, being short handed, tired, sore and missing home. Leave their families behind, Missing out on special and important events, looking memories with friends and family bc they aren't there. Missing their child's first words and steps all so they can provide a life for their family.
So many don't know the risks that surrounds these guys daily at work, something as simple as human mistake, a short cut, poor timing can cost a life.
The mental strain of being in the middle of no where with the same few faces everyday can play tricks on a person, the feeling of isolation and helplessness can wear a man down, drive him crazy but show how strong he really is.
They are ridiculed and criticized by ignorant individuals for the job choice they made to provide for themselves and their families. Their wives at home holding their families together deal with long lonely hitches, raising children alone and always worried about their oilfield husband's well being.
So the next time you want to call someone a Rig Pig or Oilfield Trash know that they earned that title that you consider to be degrading and they wear it with honour bc the weak do not survive out here.
