Enough already, appology accepted. I've been in the building trades for 29 years and wouldn't recomend using this word to describe an apprentice or any one else for that matter. There are many definitions to this word, none that I would consider flattering. I know what you said was in jest but care needs to be taken when posting on the internet.

Im sincerely sorry you took my comment as an insult requiring an apology. this is the definition I was using.
so in this regard, I shall now call myself the new young punk.
Sincerely, Gene

Here is a formal apology to John Dutra.
Using the term "new young punk" was not intended as an insult, but rather as "tongue in cheek" to differentite from one of the veteran harley hummerites.
Sorry it was taken as an insult...I apologize.
Sincerely, F Gene Underwood (AKA "Underwear" to John)
