Safety Inspection


I used to work at a military base. We had periodic "safety inspections", in which an inspector would tour the building checking for safety hazards.

On one such occasion, I was written up for a safety violation. The inspector said that I had broken the rule against placing an object on top of a bookcase. "What's the problem with that?" I asked. "It might fall off and land on someone's head," she explained.

Except ... the object in question was my hat. A felt hat. "So," I said, "If my hat fell on my head, I could just leave it there and go home." The inspector was not amused.

I can't help but wonder how many people are injured or killed by felt hats plummeting six inches or more and landing on their heads.

I must express my appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this issue. Because of surfing around throughout the world-wide-web and obtaining techniques which were not helpful, I thought my entire life was over. Being alive minus the answers to the issues you've solved all through your good posting is a crucial case, as well as the ones which may have badly affected my entire career if I hadn't come across the website. Your actual talents and kindness in playing with all the details was priceless. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a subject like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for your expert and result oriented guide. I will not hesitate to recommend your blog to anybody who should receive support about this subject matter.
