I can only handle the truth in small doses

Today I almost wish that the guy who got fired did not get fired. It was a selfish sort of wish. Him getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to him. If getting fired does not benefit him, nothing that a human being could give him will ever help him. Though sometimes I think that a good stiff beating once or twice a week until his behavior modifies might be worth a try.

But I digress. Getting fired might have been the best thing that ever happened to him, but it sure has created a lot of work for me. And what really bothers me is that the work seems to be unending.

For example, today I was doing various inspections that he used to do. While I was in the process of performing inspections, a lady asked me if I also inspected the drop down female plugs that were all over the place. These plugs were mounted on various sliders so that they could be used to power equipment wherever it was needed on the floor.

Now whether I was supposed to inspect these drop down outlets was a little bit of a grey area. Normally I would have been all for inspecting them. But I had already found so many problems that I was going to have to fix that I was a little scared of looking for anymore problems. But since she asked. . .

The first one had no ground to speak of. The second one I tested had the polarities reversed.

After that I quit testing them.
