    Why does it look like Spanky is hiding?

    Have fun with those wires, the only reason I would braid wires would be to have them take up less space and look tidy.

    I suggest you hike on down to the medical professionals and get some kind of immunization! Dude, you're gonna catch something nasty and infectious in that mess.

    ok so i sit in my hotel room angry at the world and the clowns that run my company

    look at what happened today

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    so im cursing along talking on my phone with a coworker about how bad our jobs were and i had just started to tell him about what a dog the van i was driving was and about how it sounds like a 40 year old tractor things exaust is almost completely gon and its not firing on all cylinders. and i talking with him and the conversation went something like this:

    me:hey the van just started making a new noise

    co-worker:haha nice what is it?

    me: it sounds like a rubbing noise

    co-worker: me and another guy were driving it two weeks ago and every time we went around a corner the check engine light would come on

    me: thats great what was it

    co-worker:it was 3 1/2 quarts of oil low

    me: haha i wonder if this one is going to die on me to

    co-worker: im suprised it hasn't yet

    (van starts to shake and make a loud noise)

    me: oh no i think i have a flat tire

    co-worker: are you kidding me

    (van starts to shake harder noise is so loud i can not hear the phone smoke is coming from the right side of the van)

    me: [yelling] i have to go the F***ing engen just exploded



    i then droped the phone and pulled over to find the tire shredded apart. a trucker stoped and blocked trafic on the sholder for me and let me the use of a hamer so i could get the spare tire off the rusted bracket.

    but enough of that on to a few more pic's

    Sorry, but Lol :D I love the way you find the time to finish the phone conversation before pulling off the road!


    I had a similar experience a couple of years ago, but with added worry. I was with my father in law in his car going home from a holiday in our caravans. My wife was with her Mum pulling our caravan. I get a phone call saying they've had to pull off the road quick as a tyre on the caravan burst. So we had to turn back and when we got parked found the tyre had completely asploded. Trying to lift a caravan with a scissor jack is an exercise in futility and with traffic zipping by makes hairs stand on end a bit. Not nice at all.

    ...Can I have your job? Please?

    Also, are you sure those qualify as cabling 'jobs'?

    lol the whole fact that you have your in laws with ya makes it even better. im so lucky the trucker stopped and used his big rig to block the shoulder for me. and if he didnt have that hammer i would never have been able to get the spare off the bracket.


    its yours if you want it. people have been running from this place like rats off a sinking ship. and im almost sure the people who installed the systems before us were not much better than trained animals

    Pressurized water supply pipe I would assume.

    As for putting the hole in the wall, I'm going to guess since he is a POS installer, that the occasional cable needs to be run. Kinda looks like they're installing a drive-through order screen and somebody got a little too happy with the drill/sawsall.

    yeah we were mounting a drive through order screen and my coworker drove a dry wall screw right through a copper pipe that supplied a water spicket out side.

    it would have been fine had he not backed the screw out, the blast of water plus the slippery stainless steal almost knocked him off the the counter he was standing on.

    we ran around the store for 10min trying to shut it off but i couldn't find any thing so i went to take a pic with my cell phone and realized i had my video camera in my bag and decided to tape it.
