    I was working on a new construction house one time, and the guy I was working with was always arguing with the roofers.

    One day he says “come here, I want to show you something” so we go outside…

    Looking up at the roof he says “see the roofers up there working with a hammer in one hand and roofing nails in there mouth”

    I said “yeah”

    Well, he said…”I pissed in their box of roofing nails last night!” LOL

    To this day, every time I see roofers with nails in there mouth I chuckle.
    Live each day like it is your last, for one day you will be right!

    How 'bout a hand full of BB's?

    One co-worker drove his new Harley to work and I took my zoom spout oile and made a puddle under his bike. He come out and looked it over good, rode his bike arround a bit and parked it in a different spot, so I dripped some oil under it again.

    I hear some of them on the phone, here in tech service.

    Like, a nickel in 3/4" copper water pipe. Acts like a random butterfly valve.

    Popcorn kernels in the vent connector on a furnace or boiler...

    Peppermint oil in a steam boiler's water...

    I saw a weldor fasten a guy's toolbox to a ceiling girder once, full, and upside down.

    We have done so much for so long with so little, that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

    Ok Customer won't pay.

    Put a wiffle ball in the flue of there 90% furnace.

    Saw a guy get duct taped to a column in a plant one day, plant manager found him he was kicked out and the guys that did it was kicked out. I lucked out I guess. No horse play in Dupont.


    Get back with a co worker, screw his paperwork folder to the shop table, screw his tool box or bag down. or just unlatch it for him as he's picking up to go.

    Dead mouse under the truck seat.

    Engage the child locks in the back of his van so he can't get out. Obviously only works with headache rack with no door.

    Peg his guages. Cut flex wire with his snips.
    Poor pvc glue in with his pvc fittings.

    Throw you thrash in his van.

    Turn the heater on in the summer.
    Turn the radio up real loud to Kill you mother Kill you father bull****.
    Turn the A/c on in the winter.


    If ever following a co-worker through a stop light while making a turn and his side doors fling open and all his tools are in the middle of the intersection just calmly honk horn, wave, smile and go onto the jobsite.

    If the salesman ever lusts about your wife or g/f just calmly ask him how old his daughter is now.


    I could keep em coming guys.

    This is more of a story.. but it's entertaining... so you guys will like it.

    One guy I used to ride with when I was just a wee apprentice would always point out the "larger" chicks and the "not so great looking" ones and say "yours". Obviously taking the good looking one's for himself. Well we were going it his house one day (it was slow), we passed his daughter on the way there... I said "mine" really loud. Ohhhh the look on his face was priceless! Didn't hurt none that she was a hottie!
