Anyone else feel like the “lineman” have gotten ALL the attention in the aftermath of Ida?
I get it. These guys left their family’s and homes and came to Louisiana to help us get power restored. I get it they came here with no hotel rooms and to work long hours, but let’s be real for a second. They are getting PAID and paid pretty handsomely, and getting per diem. Let’s not act like these line companies don’t thrive on this shite. They will be chasing the next storm to make that money. Yea they need a place to stay and I’m thankful for churches and the like that have put them up, but literally everything I see in the media is about how bad the lineman have had it in these conditions. I mean shite can the people who actually had damage and lost nearly their whole lives get some attention.

Sorry /end rant.

I hate when they’re in town. I haven’t seen my wife in almost a week.

I’ll reserve judgment until I see some their choreographed TikTok videos.

An 80 foot tall oak crushed my house and I'm gonna be living with family for at least 3 months. You know what doesn't make me feel better? Having to constantly talk about it. Me losing my home temporarily doesn't make me special. But working long hours away from home at a somewhat dangerous job is worthy of praise, especially since the outcome of that work is power restored to the community.

I’m guessing this is the twentieth anniversary of OP complaining that the firemen are getting too much praise for rushing into the twin towers.

Yeah, those linemen have it made making all that cash. They also have the added bonus of keeping their weight down working in an environment with 110° heat index in boots, long pants, long sleeves, hard hat and safety vest.

Never a better time to be a waitress at Hooters or Twin Peaks.

You mustve been the one that cursed out a lineman in covington.

Hey, for whats it worth, you are going to be the last one to get power.

If you’re without power and don’t think these linemen are important, then volunteer to be last to have you power restored.
