The conservative estimate is that I moved 7650 lbs. today. That's 3.825 tons for anyone who is keeping track. The only positive thing I can say about this job is that it is supposed to be easier to recover from AC joint surgery if you have strong shoulder muscles. I could bench press a small pony, so I guess I'm ready for surgery.
When I told my boss I was quitting so I could get my shoulder fixed, he told me that he would be glad to have me back, I'd always have a job there, things go really well on the days I work, blah blah blah. Outside, I was nodding gratefully and saying thanks, inside I was thinking, "Buddy, the only way I'm ever coming back here is if I'm representing a union. You're not going to want me back then."
