    A cattleman won't volunteer advice because he doesn't want to start fight or have you quit the job. So, if you're not sure about how to do something ask.

    If you wear work boots, you may prefer a steel toed boot. If you're doing electrical work, you'll prefer something in a non-conductive composite. Remember that there can be capacitors which can still hold a charge even if the power is off.

    One way to talk a depressed cowboy out of suicide when he is sitting at a ranch table with a pistol and a bowl of coffee in front of him is to ask him not to because you would be stuck cleaning up the mess. He may feel sympathy for your plight and hand you the gun. (This is based on a true story.)
