I knew it. As soon as I got in my car, I knew it.
When it's already 81' and it's only 4:34 in the morning, yeah, it was going to be a hot one. Indeed it was. Before it was all said and done, 5 people had fallen out in the plant. Seems like every time I turned around, Supervisor Ronny and Supervisor Calvin were rolling the wheelchair out to take someone else to the first aid room.
Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I only saw 4 of the incidents myself. A coworker told me that someone on the other side of the plant had also fallen out. Still, I don't ever remember that many people falling out in one day.
After they'd toted the third person up to first aid, I told my friend, "People are dropping like flies in this place. I think I'm going to go home and hide under the covers."
And give thanks for Willis Haviland Carrier.
