Central Foundry Defiance....life experiences
Junior year and 20 years old. I was assigned to be a maintenance supervisor on 3rd shift for the environmental equipment on the roof on Plant 1: we did heavy repair on the ventilation, scrubbers and HVAC. This was a huge assignment and I had about 30 guys working for me. One guy (lets call him Tom) in particular was a real problem...lazy, and incredibly elusive: hiding in the 1M square foot of roof and equipment sheds covering Plant 1.
One morning starting at about 4:30 AM I went looking for him and systematically covered every inch. I was scratching my head, trying to figure out where he was and was completely confused....normally, they never leave their assigned areas, because that would draw the attention of another supervisor, who would radio me and ensure that he got written up. I finally realized that the Plant 2E supervisor was out...the mice will play and all that...so I started on the west side and gradually made it all the way to the east part of 2E, just as the sun was coming up.
The roof was asphalt and very quiet, and I could see someone laying in a wheelbarrow near the edge of the roof. So I snuck up and saw a six pack of empties on the roof and my "guy" pleasuring himself in the wheelbarrow with a Playboy magazine. I started laughing hysterically, shocking the hell out of "Tom" as he tried to pull up his pants, falling out of the wheelbarrow in the process.
As he finished pulling up his pants, he turned around and said "you're not gonna tell anyone are you?"
"Well" I said, "That depends on you....the way I see it, I've got 6 weeks to go on this rotation....you can either be my hardest worker, or I'm going to repeat the story in the break room, every single day, until I go back to school"
Needless to say, he was quite cooperative
