Re: Sometimes the stump wins
My uncle once had a job as a crane operator, and at friday evening he worked late, and after that he took a hard earned beer in the nearby pub. Some friends found him sitting there, joined and kept buying him while he still had to bring the crane back to the company. In the end he was drunk and took off with the 6 axle overwidth telescopic crane on a very narrow road with trees growing a foot beside the asphalt. Needless to say he skimmed a few trees and some mirrors of opposing traffic, which brought him some serious trouble. They took his drivers license, which means he cannot drive ANY motor vehicle, not even a moped. He had to take a job as an excavator operator instead, and have a colleague pick him up.Free scrap is a good investment !!!
