When I started out thirty some odd years ago, the company I worked for did plumbing, heating, a\c and we also delivered oil. We all did a little of this and a little of that. It was in the spring and me another guy, Jeff were out on the oil truck delivering Kerosene to trailers in a local trailer park. These were all old 10' wides and most of them had 2, 55 gallon barrels mounted horizontally benind the trailer. We used a spout attached to the oil nozzele to fill them. Anyhow I was at the truck and Jeff was the fill guy. All of a sudden I hear Jeff give a yell as then I see a plume of oil spraying up over the trailer and all over the yard. So I shut off the pump as fast as I can and then Jeff comes out from behind the home, soaked with kerosene. I ask him what the hell happened. He said he wanted to see what the oil looked like coming out of the nozzle so he pulled it out of the fill hole, slipped and fell and of course all hell broke loose. Just to add insult to injury I made him ride back to the shop on the running board.
No announcement yet.
