Have you ever had a bad day where nothing seemed to go right?
This is an actual report that was turned in by a brick mason after an
injury. This is what he said to his employer:
When I got to the building, I found that the hurricane had knocked off
some bricks from the top.
So - I rigged up a beam with a pulley at the top of the building, and I
hoisted up a couple of barrels full of bricks.
When I had fixed the damaged area, there were a lot of bricks left over.
Then I went to the bottom and began releasing the line.
Unfortunately - the barrel of bricks was heavier than I was and before I
knew what was happening the barrel started coming down, jerking me up
and I decided to hang on since I was too far off the ground by then to jump.
Half way up, I met the barrel of bricks coming down - FAST.
I received a hard blow on my shoulder.
I then continued to the top, banging my head against the beam and getting
my finger pinched and jammed in the pulley.
When the barrel hit the ground - HARD- it burst its bottom, allowing the
bricks to spill out.
I was now heavier than the barrel.
SO - I started dawn again at a high speed!
Half way down, I met the empty barrel coming up - FAST.
I received severe injuries to my shins.
When I hit the ground, I landed on the pile of spilled bricks, getting
several painful cuts and deep bruises.
At this point I must have lost my presence of mind because, I let go of
The barrel came down - FAST - giving me another blow on my head, putting
me in the hospital.
I respectfully request sick leave.
FRIENDS THATS WHAT I CALL A BAD DAY!
