Gory Workplace Safety Video
Luckily for me I work at a job where I can sit on my fat ass and look at a computer screen all day. It’s the American dream, really. Unfortunately, some people out there actually have to lift crap and use energy at their job. When the hell do they check their Gmail?
Don’t you think for a second that I don’t thank my lucky stars every night before I go to bed that I am not one of those people. I often wake up in a cold sweat from the nightmares I have about having to do physical labor.
Well you can thank our new writer Chrissie for adding to my fears by sending me the video you see below. I warn you it might not be the most safe for work thing out there but what you get is a 1998 safety video titled “Will You Be Here Tomorrow? “. The amazing real (in the sense that a company actually made it) video features people falling on giant spikes, forklifts toppling over on legs and compressed air canisters flying into workers faces. Apparently, that's all in a days work.
Think your job is tough? Trying working at a place where you could get your arm ripped off at any second. Honestly if I thought any of these things could happen to me at my job I would run home and hide under my covers. You thank Al Gore for the internet boom and it's cushy jobs. Go on now... Thank him!
To offset the terror of this video I also included one of my favorite sexual harassment parody videos below. Again, big time NOT SAFE FOR WORK kids.
