Like Stan I meant no offence, just ribbing you a bit. Honestly I have never worked in a union shop. My biggest problems came from the workers and foreman. The workers would drag around fixing a problem; the foreman would push them to hurry. Of course the first thing out of their mouth is "George said--." Well then you got a foreman wanting to know why you are holding up production. It seemed to be a constant uphill battle. Yes there were times I had to just pull rank so to speak.
Aragon is the worst welding gas I know, it has no smell or taste, it displaces the air in your lungs before you even know you are affected. When oxygen is being forced into you lungs you darn near choke to death trying to breath. First hand experience.:-)
Like Stan, I am glad it is behind me.
