I can not agree more with white tigers post on the rubber gloves. I also have been a mechanic for over 45 years and industrial painter for over 40 years . I do see guys over the years who were in this trade not using PPE show gradual effects of exposure to harsh chemicals.
I for one , realized this over 15 years ago from personal experience and would like to be around for many more projects. As my dear wife put it also , if her hands looked like mine , would I allow her to rub them all over my !!!! . That also makes me think that I need to take care of myself for her also.
Guys , need to put your machoness to the side and think that how are you going to handle it when you have a minor illness and brake down and go to the doctors and find out that you are going to die sooner than you would have thought. I have had a few friends have this happen to them. Before they were diagnosed , they talked like tough guys but when the bad news hit them , they were struck so hard that they were meek as mice and then day by day you can see major changes.
I for one ,am willing to admit that I am a sissy but hopefully live long enough to be a old sissy.
