All of us who have spent any time in the oilfield have endured criticism of some sort.  Usually it stems from environmental purposes, and from lack of education.  As a family, we have moved more times then we should following the industry, and have endured an awful lot of rejection and negative behavior, just simply because of our career choice.  For example, when we first moved into the boom town that we currently reside in, cost of living was a direct reflection of oilfield judgment.  Rent is outrageous, and the first question they ask before you are even allowed to look at a home, is if you are oilfield.  If you reply yes, rent seems to go up, or the deposite is higher.  If you want to take your camper to the local campground for a vacation, they assume you are oilfield looking for living accommodations in their facility and the price goes up.  I may be just an average person, but I cant help but wonder, why on earth, any of that should matter... as if oilfield money is dirty or something... money is money, it spends the same no matter where it comes from.  This episode is going to focus on how we handle these uncomfortable situations.  Take the time to listen, add to the conversation by joining our live chat, or email at gypsylyn@hotmail.com , tell me your story or input on the subject and I will do my best to incorporate it into our program. Also, feel free to send a shout out to anyone who may be listening!!
