I guess worst day on the job is relative, a couple of “worst days” that come to mind for me involve lost lives and limbs but one that comes to mind before I joined the AF was when we made a new unexpected window in the shop. Working in a cabinet shop and we had a shipment of sheet goods, I was off loading another pallet nearby so luckily I wasn’t involved directly. One of the other guys was attempting to stack a pallet full of 5’x12’ sheets of 1 1/2” thick MDF without taking the time to put on the longer forks I had on my forklift. His pallet shifted and once sheets that big and heavy start moving they don’t stop easily. The boss was not happy with the hole they tore in the side of the building but at least nobody got hurt. The time and effort it would have taken to swap forks was certainly less than moving all that MDF by hand.
