    Hey guys and girls,

    Today, I witnessed one of my customers proving that he is really not fit to lead. Situation: He (Customer) purchases a 20-30 Foot tower out of glass to put small cars in a display format! So far so good...he decides to build the thing himself, today with 4 mechanics, and his sales manager driving the fork lift to unload the trailer truck. (This is a true story!)

    As I watch in amazement, wondering why he didn't contract this out!
    The sales manager (would be fork-lift driver) was instructed by my customer to speed things up and to lift double the load allowed for the fork lift!!!!

    And then Murphy's law took over...the load crashes to the ground onto a new Nissan Hybrid..it was a nice car! Sorry no photos, I am still in shock...:) In this country everyone is an expert at everything!

    I feel better now...thanks for listening! Cheers:toasting:

    I feel you should have at least had phone video of the whole thing.

    balance

    Hey OP,

    you know it is our core strength that needs to be worked on to maintain balance...my PT made sure I knew that. It does make the difference.
