I don't let anything get in the way of good time staking on concrete, road base, subgrade or sharp dry clay in shards along the spoils piles.

SO guys wear them, so they can't be all that bad.... 😎

Kneeling on a bunch of goatheads would almost make me wear those.  Almost.

Absolutely charge for it.  But most of the time I've gotten, "since you're here, can you layout......" 

I suspect that it's sometimes a way to get us out there ASAP.

Can't remember the last time my knees were on the ground.  Simply is not what I do.  Ever.

The first thing to go on a pair of jeans for me is the left knee.  I can go down on the right knee, but I have to think hard about it.

Kneepads. I use them routinely. I do not wait until I know I will be kneeling. I put them on if I might. I was having trouble with sore knees a few years ago and went to them. Knee trouble cleared up fast.  Now I won't go to the field without them handy. And not wearing the knees out of my pants is a side benefit. So get over the sophomoric jokes.

@flga-2-2 I had to robots ran over by concrete trucks in two months, both in spots that should have been safe.

Distance runner here. I put em on when I'm going out to do yardwork, regardless of the specific task. I'm not quite 40, make fun of me all you want.

Punching through and digging out pavement for a centerline monument.

There is more than one way to skin a cat.  One involves kneeling.  Others don't.
