View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Family



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."

LOL...that sounds so young American.  Just a bit above the entitlement group.

I didn't see that one coming. That is funny.  I thought the rough neck was going to go to work in real estate business. That way he would be in the field and in the office both and it is never boring!

Than, that's one smart new son in-law or as Bill suggested one suffering extreme entitlement issues.
