What is wrong with this picture?


Last week I posted some pictures of men who were not practicing good safety in regards to heights. Today I'm going to post just one picture of a man on terra firma, to test your powers of observation.

As we move through later life, we need to keep ourselves occupied with small projects, as exemplified by guy in the picture below. But we must make sure we are working safely. See if you can spot anything he's doing wrong.

Chainsaw Fail

I know, I saw it right away too — no safety glasses or hearing protection! What is he thinking?!

Oh, and I caught something else really important — he’s not wearing gloves!

I might be getting up in years, but I am still sharp as a needle. How about you?

Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5


After doing four posts with pictures that show why women live longer than men, I should have known that it would be only a matter of time until more pictures surfaced. And surface they did! I got an e-mail last week with many pictures that weren't part of the ones I had published. In fact, there are enough for two posts! Today's post is the first of the two. These pictures all have something to do with men and their lack of fear (read: sense?) about height and safety.

Not all heights are a problem, and yet falling is still not a good idea, as in this one....

There are other "scaffolds" that could be just a precarious.

You Had One Job


Monday evening at Starbucks one of the weirdest things ever happened to me as I was working drive-thru. I was running a guest's Starbucks card through the register and my headset fell off. Somehow the headset hit the card just right (or just wrong?) and broke it in two lengthwise! Below is a picture my shift supervisor took of the card and of me leaning out the window, trying to explain to the poor guest what had happened to his card.

One Job Sbux

She posted the picture on our store's private group on Facebook with the caption, "Rob, you had one job." A fellow partner said in my defense, "Actually, Rob has two jobs." Of course, by this weekend I will be able to say, "I had two jobs, but now I have just one."

The thing about "you had one job" made me think of a few pictures I have of some results of people who had one job, which they did poorly. I will share them today.

It's unseasonably cold here this week, like in most everywhere else in the country. I don't know who put up this display of footwear, but wow!

A Job Well Done?, take 2


Week before last my blog post called A Job Well Done featured pictures of some results of people's doing their work poorly. Today's post is more pictures of other results.

The first few are some products that demonstrate a lack of knowledge in either the designer or in those executing the designs.

The t-shirt maker was right, at least, in knowing that the name of the continent begins and ends with an "A."

Which Continent?!

This next one shows that someone needs to learn some basic English grammar.

A Job Well Done?


Well Done Fortune

Does it frustrate you when people don't do their jobs well? Doing a poor job seems to be the MO of many people these days, as in not putting the fortune inside the fortune cookie. The "inspiration" for this blog post is the confluence of several events recently. One is my having started to work as a barista at a local Starbucks this summer. I wanted to have a part-time job, and since I love people and coffee, Starbucks seemed like the perfect place to apply to work. I am enjoying the job very much, and there is surprisingly much to learn, and to remember! I really want to do my job well, for the sake of my customers and of the other partners in the café.

Here's a picture of me in my barista disguise.

Rob the Barista

Another event that helped trigger today's post was the experience that a former student of mine had this week. She is currently a student at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, for 9 months of culinary training. (Imagine my excitement to have a former student doing that!!!) Kerry is sharing her experiences on Facebook almost daily as they happen and then weekly in greater detail on her blog, Kerry Hands. Some of you may enjoy following her adventures.

One of Kerry's experiences recently was cooking beef, to French specifications. How done would you say the meat is in the following picture?
