    Also don't use a plasma cutter then stand on the molten waist. I burns through thick rubber soled boots very quickly and when there done up well its a bitch. You learn to remove ur boots very rapidly while crying like a baby

    My more prosaic one was never dump 10 pounds of peeled, wet, parsnips into a huge pan of boiling water in a T shirt - about fifty scalds from the splash droplets across both arms :)

    NEVER ask a woman if she's pregnant unless you actually see the baby coming out at that precise moment!

    OOH Yeah, was buying a car from a woman once, did the deal, then we realized the parcel shelf was in the rafters of the garage, she got the steps out and started to climb, i said "Whoa, i'll do that, i dont want you climbing up there in your condition" ... "What condition?"She said Whoops! Turned out she had one of those special tummys.

    Quickly grabbed the shelf and left.

    Also, once was asked to remove a 500 gallon heating oil tank from a garden (that had been craned in to situ) So needed one of those road saw things to cut it into managable pieces, do not do that in a pair of nylon track suit bottoms! Nearly lost all chance of fathering children, due to ensuing fire in the nethers!
