I got a crash course in masonry today. We had to tear down parts of the shower walls to install our valves, so we had to build it back. Normally, this would be a carpenter's job, but we're at a job stoppage until the carpenters catch up, so I decided to help them out a bit. The end result wasn't pretty, but it serves its purpose.
Also this week, one of our new guys, Knight, sewed on his Staff stripe. It's traditional to tag on stripes, which basically means to punch the living shit out of the recipient. You know, so the stripes stay on. I think it's kinda ridiculous, but everyone else sure seems to enjoy it. Except for the guy with bruised arms, of course.
