So, yesterday was very nice. Cool but sunny.

A perfect day to cut up a tree that fell due to a storm. It’s a fairly big tree. Sorry I forgot to take pictures (stupid thing #1).

Me and my 2 sons.

We are about 50% done and one son gets his chain stuck. Messes up the chain getting it free.

Grrr. Oh well - it happens.

I get a new chain and install. Perhaps I was a tad upset and trying to hide it.

I give him the saw back and he starts again.

A couple minutes later he says “Dad, it won’t cut. It’s just bouncing off the limbs”!

I think “now what”! Go get the saw and see I put the chain on backwards!!!! No way to hide that mistake!

Both boys are still texting me on my less than perfect skills!

Did this Saturday (took pic today)

That is from a framing nail gun. Yes, I know better. Yes, it's going to be fine, just "meat damage", and loss of pride.

All you did was put a chain on backwards.

:ROFLMAO:

Ouch.

Yes - all are free to share. I just wasn’t sure folks wanted to admit to stupid stuff.

Tried sighting in a rifle a couple of weeks ago where the scope mounts weren't tightened fully. Group kept getting bigger and bigger on a rifle I know groups well.

A few days ago, I caught a hydraulic hose on something when running the mulch head on the skid steer and did this. I do stupid stuff almost every day.

You had the chain installed like you lived in Australia. yes I did that once two.

Pic is ROPS damage, did it twice, I now put 5 gallon buckets in the doorway so I don’t forget it’s up.
