no previous part Part 1 of sitting at work series Part 2: BOOOOOMM! »

I work in a small town in a Fab shop!
I’m a draftsman we build prison equipment
cells, furniture, doors, windows etc.
Its a nice day outside so we opened our office door to drive ourselves insane
wanting to go outside and enjoy it!
Well I’m sitting here WORKING on a (Lumberjocks blogs) prison and theres a shadow
in the doorway. I stopped for a moment and looked out of the corner of my eye and
theres someone standing there. I darn near jumped up and ran through the wall cause
I was working so hard (reading blogs) that I wasnt paying attention. #1 we build prisons #2 now days you really cant trust people like when we were kids. #3 I watch to many CSI shows. #4 we build prisons
etc…..
Anyway!! that old man is lucky cause he almost got shot with a bananna!
He just comes walking in like he owns the place I have bananna in hand ready to attack!!!
He just strikes up a conversation with me and I relax and put the bananna down but keep
it in reach just in case!
Well we talked awhile and off he went down the road!
Should I eat the bananna or keep it close? hahahaha!
I know this has nothing to do with woodworking but figured it would lighten
someones day!

Lucky Dawg!

The bananna was the only weapon I had at the moment!
He about had a bananna for lunch peel and all! hahahaha!
Wasn’t Jacob!! cause Jacob works up front in another office
and we ate lunch together outside earlier. hahahaha!
Multi million dollar door company and we have the crappiest
doors on our office. Most of the time you dont even have
to open the door to feel the great outdoors! hahahahaha!

as an old expert ,

the doors you guys make work just fine ,
a little bit over the top for me though .

you need some one to open them for you .

i don’t even know where the keys are for the ones on my house ,
i never lock them .

I worked in prisons for over 30 years and for awhile after I retired I would go up to a closed door and wait for someone to open it for me. Then I would realized I could open it myself.

I like your attitude patron. Sometimes the strongest weapon used against us is fear and, if you remove fear, then someone is just left holding a banana ;)
