At what point do you think "maybe I should let go" at least that's what I think I'd be thinking before I was sent flying through the air.

Re: How Not To Unload A Truck


My personal recommendation after spending several years of my life pushing around a pallet jack at my old mans wear house would be to drop the pallet.

I've almost done that same thing a couple times, but if you drop the pallet it will stay put

Re: How Not To Unload A Truck


I was working in a warehouse over the summer and I watched a guy drop a pallet on another guy's foot. It wasn't too heavy, but it obviously hurt and his foot was stuck under it. The stuck party is yelling, "My foot! My foot! Raise it up!" The sticking party is furiously cranking on the thing but didn't have it engaged, so he was just pumping air.
Dumb.
