Cringeworthy and Inadvisable Construction Maneuvers

There are some things, like bulging water damage that just hurt to see. There are other unsafe maneuvers that we have more control over, like jacking up a car with another car, that also hurt to see. It's a mess of improper execution and incompetent construction out there, as creative or convenient as it may seem at the time

OSHA-Unapproved Moments Of Safety Failure

Anyone who's had to work with their hands has likely witnessed, or even low-key partaken in some safety fails that would make OSHA faint. These highly questionable and unsafely done jobs probably shouldn't be considered a point of pride, but people keep doing them, usually out of convenience. Here's a story of an incompetent manager who fired their only OSHA certified forklift operator and had it backfire.

What we get are "not my job" moments of quality unprofessionalism. The world is populated with crap infrastructure, stupid signs, and painted over spiders because somewhere along the line someone said, "eh, not my job."

Tumblr Thread: The Chilean Cat Foreman

Tumblr explained the life and times of a stray Chilean cat that ended up as an honorary foreman on a construction site. Who knows if he's actually qualified for the job. In that case it just goes to show that it's more about who you know than what you know. For more tumblr cat stuff, here's a tumblr thread on how cats became domesticated.

It pays off to keep a calm and collected manner in the face of some alarming BS. This home builder almost ended up costing this man and his wife $13K. Fortunately he was able to right the wrongs by filing a lien, and got every penny back. Love to see the homeowner come out victorious in the end.
