    I feel completely invigorated. I must treat myself to something good like ice cream tonight!


    Today one of my co-workers and I had to unload a truck this morning. We unlocked the door to go inside and the door was jammed. After pulling on it a little tighter we got it open. Apparently someone had stacked these really, really heavy metal thingermajigs somewhat close to the door in the back so whenever he opened the door I'm thinking the way they were laying on top of each other came unsettled. Anyways whenever we shut the door behind us almost all of them fell a good story or two down straight at my co-worker. At the corner of my eye, instinctively, I pushed him out of the way with all of my force and darted in the opposite direction of where the things landed. The things were so heavy that they cracked and shattered the floor when they hit, sending pieces flying everywhere. They were directly above him and I swear they could have ended his life if I didn't do something. So he looked at me after getting spooked to high hell and told me that I saved his life!



    Sooooooo he's filing for unsafe work environment! What a day! icon_eek.gif


    So what have YOU done lately? icon_biggrin.gif

    I bitched out two guys at the gym because they wouldn't shut up when I was doing deadlift. I was challenging myself with 265lb this time and bam, these two mofos won't shut their blowholes.

    That's what I did today. I saved my own life tho. Otherwise I might have seriously hurt myself if I didn't tell them to take their chattering somewhere else.

    Soulasphyxi,

    I'm sure your co-worker will be eternally grateful. You even risked your own life to save his. You deserve that ice cream and more!

    As for me, nothing I do even comes close.

    Everyone contributes in their own way. You are just as significant as anyone else. icon_smile.gif

    I packed some parachutes and saved some lives, but your story is alot more intense. Your raw instinct to intervene is pretty amazing and admirable. You saved a life today man. You definitely deserve more than ice cream! Your buddy and his family should be very grateful that you were there and that you did what you did. Kudos icon_smile.gif

    OP, you do deserve credit and kudos and the company should give you a big fat thank you for saving a co-workers life, without thought of the risk to yourself.
