Why I dont work there anymore....






 I bet you're wondering how I rolled a road roller on a flat road aren't you?

Who knew you could start an aircraft in gear? let alone that it could start moving and shred another plane like that. (the local universities learn to fly plane)
 It's not my fault...they should have painted their ute a bright colour... like Red..Oh..Right!


Seriously...it was only a little bomb..

Ha. I went to a job like the first pic just a fortnight ago.

The driver was a tad annoyed.

Most of these people must have been asleep at the wheel. The road roller photo gets my vote mind boggling.

Being a centre for mining we see a lot of photo 1 Jules, very tricky stuff getting a big truck unstuck without falling down laughing in front of the boss.
Hi Windsmoke, agreed, they were all asleep, drunk or drugged (possibly all three)I guess the road roller must have got a flat tyre.

I told a colleague they have to plan the loading carefully or the vessel will sink right at the dock. She said I was full of shit. Can I send her this?

Tempo said...

Hi Jen, good to hear from you again. You are quite right of course, we load crushed Iron Ore here and it has to be spread in the ships hold right through the loading process to prevent the ship turning over and going to the bottom. Feel free to use the post as you wish.

The ship on the beach baffles me.
What did they do? Park it and wait for the tide to go out so they wouldn't get their feet wet??

Tempo said...

Hi River, Yes they must have parked it there at high water, Hope they managed to back it off at the next hi-tide
