Oilfield Joke: A Wildcatter's New Son in Law

A successful Wildcatter's daughter married a roughneck and the father had a meeting with his new son-in-law.  "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man.

"To show how much we care for you, I've made you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go out into the patch every day and learn the operations."

The roughneck interrupted, "I hate just driving around.  I can't stand the lack of dangerous activity."

"I see," replied the father-in-law.  "Well, then you can work in the office and take charge of some of the operations."

"I hate office work," said the roughneck.  "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day."

"Wait a minute," said the father-in-law.  "I just gave you half interest in a profitable business, but you don't like field work and won't work in a office.  What am I going to do with you?"

"Easy," said the roughneck… "Buy me out."

From the folks here at Oilfield Appreciation Days, We hope you have a Great Friday!

 The Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Industry has historically been a very cyclical industry that fatigues even the best of equipment and personnel. If we as an industry do not invest in health, education and welfare programs, 
we will lose our most valuable assets...... our hard working people.
Oilfield Appreciation Days support Oilfield Worker Health, Education and Welfare efforts, locally and abroad..
Our Mission:
Oilfield Appreciation Days are held through-out the year in areas with high concentrations of oilfield families. These events will serve as fundraisers that will in turn be used to benefit a variety of health, education and welfare programs and charities that stay in direct contact with oilfield workers and their families
