Dirty Sweaty Greasy Men
I have a new guilty pleasure, which I just discovered this past Saturday.
Yeah it's a new reality TV show. Black Gold--and I watched the whole 2008 season off and on Saturday.
It's like a soap opera, only with millions of dollars at stake and hot, dirty, sweaty men who are all barking alpha dogs but not in the alpha dog position. (Does that make sense?)
There are drillers, roughnecks and worms, each with a certain job and a very rigid pecking order.
If you can't take cussing even though it's bleeped out--don't watch.
The job is tough, dangerous and stressful and according to the website, the 5th most dangerous job in the world--drilling for oil in Texas.
It just goes to show you though, no matter what your job is, people are all the same, and the same little tempests in teapots go on no matter where you work.
