Until things go wrong because of stupidity. Then the delays and consequences that follow could cost him more than he/they imagined.

Probably not the business owner. I love to have fun on site. It's great for morale. But I try and be smart and see into the future and avoid things and actions that could hinder forward progress. The job site is just that, a job site. A playground is a playground. Never the two shall meet.

Just my opinion and how I work. I actually take the safety of others more seriously than my own.

I was being sarcastic, if I saw anyone doing that I'd probably go off on them, whether or not it's my place to do so.

I know.
Sorry about the rant. It's difficult to convey my thoughts on here in a few sentences. I knew you weren't being serious.

It's just seeing fools like that gives us all a bad name. Irritates me.
Sorry about the rant

Just to be clear, that isn't me or anyone I know. Just found it floating around on the internet.

What they wanted me to explain was my non-materials component was higher than the other guys.
