Work Wear

July 20, 2010


I admit, I am not a very good “safety gear” kind of person. It’s over 90 degrees for days on end! I am NOT wearing heavy denim overalls, steamy dust masks, and safety glasses that fog up. One thing I’d like to know is how does wearing safety glasses improve safety? I think they jeopardize safety– I wear regular glasses, and when I wear those ugly, heavy, blurry safety glasses, they steam up in seconds; I can’t see through them! How does this constitute “safety”? lol. Plus, the safety glasses are designed for someone the size of Chewbacca. Hello, “safety” gear manufacturers– we women do stuff around the house, too!!

Anyway, lol… I wear a lot of t-shirts and shorts as I work. I do wear gloves. But you can imagine how quickly I burn through the clothing– most of my t-shirts are now slathered in paint, caulk, have small tears, etc etc. We are ALWAYS looking for new t-shirts. The kids (all teens now) especially like “meaningful” custom t-shirts. One of their favorites is made by Voice of the Martyrs, and it says “This shirt is illegal in 52 countries.” It’s a great conversation starter at Home Depot. šŸ˜€ And I do love my Chuck Norris t-shirts. šŸ˜€

I saw this t-shirt recently, and it made me crack up. LOL

This is on the front:

And this is on the back:


I noticed that there’s a bunch of hype about Eclipse t-shirts right now. It’s EVERYWHERE. I don’t understand society’s sicko obsession with vampires, honestly. I don’t get how sick stuff like blood and vampires are so accepted by society as “OK,” but Christian t-shirts are “offensive.” :-p Doesn’t make sense to me.

Anyway, t-shirts are the clothing of choice for work, at least in this heat. Maybe they’ll eventually come out with VOM gloves, or Chuck Norris safety glasses…
