We farmboys were raised by fathers/grandfathers who knew how to repair equipment creatively with the materials/tools on hand. You work hard and fast and learn quickly that temper tantrums do nothing useful.
Several years ago one of those ‘farm-boys’ I worked with told me a very telling story. He lived 10 (ish) miles from town and had a date with a particular gal who lived there. Before and after school he got his list done, got all cleaned up, jumped into his truck and nothing... Don’t recall what failed, but it was dead. He called his dad who was still working, desperate for options, and got a little help with diagnosis, but that was it. He apparently canabalized one of the tractors and rigged his ride. The truck sounded like crap and would only go about 20 mph, so he was late. When he got home his old man about killed him and he was up a few more hours putting the tractor back together.
The only thing he’d say about the date of 20+ years ago, was that his girl friend was impressed with the effort he’d gone to, and to that day, he claimed it was the best date of his life. He told that story to about 5 of us, all of which were laughing so hard we hurt.
I don't know about that. Dealing with recalcitrant farm equipment can give one a real edge up on creative invective.
