Now I know why their crews have three guys watching two guys working. The three are the dedicated help.

There is a perfectly good reason for everything. The three are there to lift the tree that fell on the two.

Thanks once again for your compilation and updating efforts.  I also have no idea on the "rolling coal", where (who) did it come from?

I've also seen it refer to snow....I think.

That makes sense now. IIFC, when it referred to snow it was about pushing heavy snow and to push heavy snow one needs to throttle up. Thanks.

PO vs. OP

 

OP = Original Poster, the person who started the thread.

 

PO = Previous owner

PO = pi$$ed on, see 'mod with least seniority'.

PO = pi$$ed off, see 'mod who has to train Cat385B'

Too Much Information.......as in when someone tells you more than is appropriate or more than you EVER wanted to know. I'll add it to the list. Good snag.

There was a shopping paper that used the term NMR- needs minor repair. Sometimes they stretched that !

Old thread and I don't want to step on any toes here but but "Bring the '"heat wrench" always meant "We need the oxygen/acetylene torches." in Army recovery operation lingo.

 

"Little Joe" was the 40# 3' long wrench on the older armored vehicles that was used to turn the track adjuster to tighten the track.

 

I have many more terms used by the military that found their way into the commonly used terms column.

One that I have used occasionally:

 

SET – Spousal Equity Tax. If you’re lucky, it only amounts to 100 percent of the cost of whatever it was you bought without SWMBO’s blessing. Usually in the form of new furniture, carpets, a complete remodel, or even a new house.
