bubbleboy Posted April 6, 2004 Report Share Posted April 6, 2004 One of the things I love the most about this industry is some of the crazy a$$ people that seem to gravitate towards it. You can never judge a book by it's cover, some of the roughest looking guys on the outside have also been the finest pilots or engineers. I remember a new apprentice engineer (who is now a very fine engineer) showing up with the cockiest attitude we had ever seen. You could not tell the guy anything. One day everybody had had enough, so a bunch (he was a tough little bugger) of us got together and decided to "learn" him a lesson. After much rasslin, we had him duct-taped and up-side down on the gantry. Then some of the more senior fixers got hold of the magic markers and went to work. In the beginning it was the moustache, beard, the usual, but by the end he was looking like Al Jolson in that old movie - the white guy with the black face. After a few minutes, we let him down. He disappeared for about half and hour and re-appeared with his face completely clean!! Apparently he went and grabbed some MEK and washed it all off. Nobody could get near him he smelled so bad. We all recommended that he not have children for many years.....for more reason than just the MEK. Of course he went right back to trash talking everybody! What are some of the funnier things you guys have seen in this racket? Hide the names to protect the guilty. bubblebrain Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
