    For the last 7 years Ive had real bad knee problems due to a dirtbike wreck. Since then Ive had several surgeries and blown it out almost countless times. Even with this knee problem my profession of choice is a pipelayer. Anyway... it happened again today. I was carrying a full roll of 1" copper pipe, stepped wrong and POP /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Now Im out of commission up for awhile. No work= no pay (workmans comp dont ammount to squat). The "worse time" part means I just bought a house. Only stayed here 3 nights now. So I think I need to find a new job /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif now the fun part is finding one that pays even close to a certified pipelayer /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
