    A lineman can go to work about anywhere now, big demand if you want to learn the trade. Hard work but great job. $30 to $50 an hour depending on location and company.

    And if your on shared services and go to storm ravaged areas, you can make a small fortune in a short period of time.

    My uncle is a retired OG&E lineman. Not long after he retired, they had an outage that affected his house, so he drove down to where the guys were working to see what was happening. They said they needed help, and asked if that's why he was there.

    I don't think he actually laughed in their faces, but I believe the phrase ":hellno:" was involved.

    During the big ice storm, it was not a good idea to wear any clothing with an OGE logo on it. There were some really unhappy folks out there.

    I was out east on 40 somewhere near lakes helping co-op during ice storm. I never once seen an OGE truck in that area. Would pull-up to a house that had co-op services and neighbors with oge where not happy. Felt bad for them but nothing we could do. Did I mention I HATE ICE STORMS?

    Seriously? Like it’s their fault Mother Nature knocked their power out? That’s crazy.

    Same folks who are pissed off at the airline when the plane is broken or there is really bad weather and they can't leave on time. Personally, I'd rather fly on a fully functioning aircraft and not into bad weather.

    Seriously. People would come up to you in the grocery store and want to know when their power would be restored, and why wasn’t I out there working on it, and were mighty unhappy. It wasn’t a casual conversation.
    When I explained that I worked in the power plant, not a lineman, you’d think they got stabbed in the heart.

    Sometimes people should wait until the next day to post, maybe they won't appear to be such a dick. Sometimes it won't matter.
