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

Management Pays Rent On Equipment, Wastes Tens of Thousands

Anyone who's ever been tempted by anything at Rent-A-Center has done the math and decided it's a stupid idea to rent a TV, so why are corporate big wigs getting away with the business version of the same thing? It seems like almost anyone would be better at budgeting than these suits. For another genius move by management, here's a time management illegally banned overtime pay and IT got it all back.

Guy Stands Up to Jerk Boss Who Makes Him do Two Jobs

People deal with their fair share of ignorant bosses, so it's incredibly satisfying to see an employee who's in the right win something, like this overworked employee who revolted by doing his exact job description. And to prove that your boss is being a complete hypocrite is icing on the cake.

A passenger started recording a sparking wheel during takeoff from Montreal. The whole wheel comes off, but luckily planes are built with redundancy in mind and the thing landed safely soon after. No one was injured, but some pants were probably harmed.

Construction Worker Finds Himself Spooning Boss on First Day

From what we know about relationships, this would be more acceptable on the third day. Anyway, an equipment failure led to this construction worker having a very intimate first day with his new boss. For a more heroic construction story, here's one about an incompetent owner who mistakenly fired a special contractor and then came crawling back.

Story of a construction worker who ended up awkwardly spooning his boss on the first day.

You might wanna turn your sound down for this one. Anyone who's operated a forklift before is gonna see some glaring mistakes going on here. Number one, even attempting to lift tons upon tons of weight like this with multiple forklifts is already a kinda sketchy move. Things really start to turn when you see those masts not getting tipped back. Crap like this is a decent reminder that the safest place to be in a tipping forklift is inside that damn forklift. Here are some safety failures that would give OSHA nightmares.

So at work I occasionally listen to music through headphones (don't worry, they do a good job of keeping the sound in and I make sure the music doesn't leak out and annoy coworkers etc. etc.). When I wear my headphones, the headphone wire hangs on the right side of my office chair's arm. When I put my headphones back on my desk, the wire loops around the left side of my chair's arm. When I roll my chair away to get up, the wire catches and my headphones clatter to the floor. EVERY. GODDAMN. TIME.

Also useful management won't get you a new computer until the old one breaks down. There's no IT team in the world that can repair the damage that this machine will wreak.
