Most of y'all already know that I work in a factory, and we are required to wear earplugs all day. This often leads to some interesting misunderstandings.
So, they've started up Line 3 for the summer busy season, and they've mostly got temps manning it. Today, they were looking all over for a brazing jig.
My group leader asked me if I'd seen it, and I said no. "It's probably over there in the rack, just in the wrong spot. If I go over and find it, do you think [the supervisor] will give me a bonus?"
"No, he'll probably just spank you."
"What?" I said. "He'll spank me?????"
"I said, 'He'll thank you.'"
Yeah, it's been that kind of day.
