    Re: employer's rig

    Back when I was a pipelayer I would plow/sand for the same co while on winter lay off. The sanding unit on my truck was old and troublesome. After much bitching the owner and I went shopping. He gets a brand new stainless sander and says heres your new toy. He also says something along the lines of "your only getting this because I know you'll take care of it" Well.. long story short. The first night out I backed it right into a pole. Luckily I just bent a flap that was easy to fix. I got away with a lot at that co but that one pissed him off. I can't blame him. I came back to the shop with my head held low and my tail between my legs, boy did I feel like an a*^.

        When I was in Spain I got an MTVR stuck in a dried lake bed. That's karma for you. Go offroad in a government vehicle and you get towed back with your entire chain of command behind you. I think my butt lost 10 lbs after that a$$ chewing.

                I melted the plastic tread on the rear bumper while soldering. My joint looked good though.

                  What's the first thing you do when you jump in a new golf cart?

                  Stomp on the gas pedal? that's what I did

                  This cart was in reverse

                  Only the canopy was visible sticking out of the water

                  Naturally, this was right next to the pro shop The tow truck tore up the 18th green trying to pull this thing off of the muddy bottom. Those 8 batteries really weigh those things down

                  Hosed it out and it ran fine

                    Re: employer's rig

                    I was never an apprentice, but when I surveyed for the company I work for I backed over a pedestrian signal pole with the survey van. I had the van parked on the sidewalk and had to back out to get back on the road. The pole lined up perfectly with the blind spot between the rear door windows. All I heard was glass exploding as it hit the walk. No damage to the van. My boss was with me that day and neither of us realized I hit it until we heard the glass explode from the pedestrian pole.

                      Foreman asked me to make a stock run on a commercial job at a college campus in the truck the owner had just gotten him the month before, the scenary was very distracting.

                      I hit a stanchion for a chain barrier to a walkway with a security guard guiding me to back up.
                      We both agreed the cause of distraction was worthwhile, my foreman wasn't quite so agreeable.
