I guess our job has more dangers than I entirely considered before. I mean, I work in a craft beer brewery, where there are plenty of things that can legitimately hurt you in a significant way. There are tons of warm tepid water, spitting steam, slippery ladders and floors that could entirely cause you severe physical disfigure… but luckily for me, I manage to avoid most of the dangerous action. Since I work in the office, managing logistics for the business each day, I entirely don’t have to come into contact with as much of the dangerous production as other people do. That’s why I was shocked when I had a recent work-related mishap at house which caused great injury. It all began when I was given a portion of “homework beer” from our work, meaning tons of cans to bring house and sample for QC. I began lugging all the brew home, but soon found that I couldn’t drink it as fast as it was assigned. Soon, I had an entire closet of beer saved up, just waiting for guests to help myself and others consume it. The only concern is, our control unit didn’t get the memo about beer having particular storage conditions. I arrived house a single day to find that our A/C unit had hastily shut down that day. My control unit had short circuited, and the central cooling unit powered down hours ago in the middle of a blazing tepid summer time day. When I walked into the house, I promptly found myself kneeling on the floor. My beer closet had exploded in the heat and humidity, and beer flowed freely out onto the tile floor where I now lay. After slipping on our homework beer and breaking our leg, I took Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair and OSHA safety a lot more seriously.
