One of our technicians was taking a fork off of a lift truck carriage and had his grip on the object slip. The fork [rumored to be working in conjunction with gravity] fell to the floor but had its fall cushioned by the technicians foot. As so often is the case, falling objects don’t seem to only target the toes, rather the top of the foot seems to be a frequent resting place of these misguided objects.

I can’t say how many boots this incident paid for, or the total number of similar incidents that have taken place. But certainly it helps us understand just how cheap our boot program really is.
