    working on some clonedo's, that were 3 stories. they had a block party wall between them.
    i was on the third floor and needed to go over to the next unit..3rd floor.
    being a lazy lil SOB. I saw a scaffold outside the balcony door, so i stepped out on the scaffold
    and grabbed a 2x4 that was a support.

    next thing i know. I am laying on the ground with that damn 2x4 in my hand.
    my boss is yelling at me to get the F___ up and stop laying around!!!!
    [[he really did care, just a grumpy ole bast___]]]
    I like it like that !
    and, It's like that now!!!!!!!!!!!!

      getting some make up fluid for our ink jet printers from the cabinet by the shop. and a forklift parked on the ramp had a parking brake cable snap,
      heard it rolling down the ramp and just managed to dodge it.
      later investigation proved it was a faulty cable (inside strands showed signs of earlier breakage and was not visible on the outside)
      drivers are now instructed to avoid parking on the ramp and to turn the steering wheel to the max left or right
      shooting the s*** is a lot more fun when you use hollow points (much more splatter)

      coffee hell gimme booze!!!

        Did not happen to me. I saw an electrician bend a 4'' conduit with a power bender, he tried adjusting the bend after wards,
        the pipe slipped, and took his nose OFF..Thank God he was in the parking lot of a hospital. they sewed it back on
        he was ok
