Trying To Get Themselves Literally Fired

Working | July 8, 2017

(I am a contract worker installing some robots to package cheese. The people working at the plant are… less than bright and are the type of people who hate any sort of modern technology… Thus, our work of training the workers how to operate the robots has taken us months. I am currently at a fast food place grabbing a quick bite to eat.)

Cashier: “Will that be all?”

Me: “Yep.”

Cashier: “For here or to go?”

Me: “Here. I have been working for five hours straight and need a break!”

Cashier: “Okay, we’ll get that right out for you!”

(Suddenly my work phone buzzes for an incoming text. I open it up and read it.)

Me: “Crud, can you make that to go? The robot just caught fire.”

(To clarify, the workers were washing down the robots and had sprayed the hose at an 240 volt plug, causing the plug to short and burst into flames! Luckily the fire was tiny and puttered itself out in less than a minute.)
