absurd & often dirty nicknames make the job a little more fun on a crapy day if you ask me. like how almost everyone ive met has a 'peace-maker' but that is different in many crews :) and heres a good one....not a nickname persay but...anyone familiar w/ the hand signal for a 13ft tube? :) lol
About 11 years ago I remember I had a day labor refer to a side bracket as a "bicycle frame".
Also the boiler makers are always asking if we can put some more "Angel Wings" in the lanes.
And I hate the word "bucks"... Well it's about 4 bucks high.
We have the "chicken legs" also and that's what they are calling them.
Now what's really offensive are some of the nicknames the guys have for each other... Can't say any of them here. ;-)
