Interesting topic,
You show me an Electrical worker who has never had any problems with pains and strains during thier career.
Electrical work isn't exactly the type of vocation that lends itself to a nice easy day at work either, it is rather hard on a persons body.
At one stage of the game in my career, I was coming home at night feeling 20 years older than what I did when I left the house.

After crawling around in a ditch or attic, it hurts. Unlike trumpy I can only feel 10 years older than I really am cause if I felt 20 years older Id be 67
