People just dont understand how challenging a day in the trees can be,add onto that the amount of travelling/driving which is also stressful,its quite understandable how pissed off you are.

I find a good old punch in the nut helps in putting these people in the picture as too how you feel.

However its your father in law so perhaps a nut punch wouldnt be the best course of action.

Joking aside...people just dont get it-i think thats why alot of tree folk go onto arb websites and groups as fellow tree folk are the only ones who get it.

From watching builders over the years on sites and the way they stand around drinking cups of tea and doing f all day I'm quite surprised any of them would be tired after a day's work , of course there are exceptions to that rule......

Feel your pain bro.

I would have given him a big wink and said,

'Don't you worry, I've still got plenty of energy left for a full-on shagging session'.

Your father inlaw has a sense of humor or a brick layer can appreciate. Generally most people have no concept how hard and stressful working in and around trees can be.

On top of the work your still traveling lots of miles per day. Just give him a grin and tell him not to worry. By the time your his age you will be fine, maybe he can teach you how to lay bricks some day.

Some people think they work hard, some are right some aren't. Maybe father in law does work hard but maybe being humble and supportive instead of being a p***k about you doing so and being tired would be better!

 

I thought I worked hard but that rap sheet for one day is impressive, good lad. What's your day rate?
