Clean Up Jobs

Some workers in desperation do desperate things.  And usually the desperate thing turns out to be, well, dumb.

One of the larger jobs I was on was a build of a thirteen story building.  As the electricians were finishing up our trim-out of the job, the carpet layers arrived.

I had made a habit of cleaning up behind me as I worked, so there weren’t many issues on my end with tools and debris lying about.  However others had not been so careful.

The carpet layers said that they wouldn’t do any clean up because, in their words, “That’s not our Job.”

There were many rooms that after being carpeted, had small lumps under the carpet.

That will wear out a carpet much faster.  And of course a worn out carpet will need replacement quicker.

It reminded me of a story I heard about a couple of carpet layers doing a job.  As they finished up and were leaving, one of the carpet layers couldn’t find his cigarettes.  As he looked about he saw a small lump in the carpet near the middle of the floor.

Taking his hammer he went over and pounded the lump flat.  Then as he was leaving the door, he saw his cigarettes on a window sill near the door.  He picked them up and put them in his pocket, but stood wondering what had been under the carpet.

About that time the lady of the house came hurrying up and asked them in an anxious voice if they had seen her parakeet.  It had gotten out of it’s cage and was nowhere to be found.

Smoking can be hazardous to your health.

And to the health of little birds.
