Getting Pally With Those Nuts

| Working | July 3, 2016

(This is halfway through my second week at a factory making car door interiors. I had no experience with manufacturing before, and every line puts the pal nuts in different areas on the door.)

Coworker #1: “Hey, girl, you put the pal nut on the wrong place on those doors.”

Me: *turning red* “I’m so sorry.”

Coworker #2: “You mess that up again, we’re gonna have to put you through initiation.”

Me: “Uh… what’s that?”

Coworker #1: “You’re going to have to walk down the line, and we’re going to throw pal nuts at you!”

Coworker #2: “Watch out, I used to be a softball player. I can throw them real hard!”

(I started laughing so hard I could barely help fix the doors. They reassured me that this happened all the time, even to the most experienced of people. Made my day a lot easier!)
