Hey new guy! Clean this up!


Ipromiseimreallycool

We’re the ones that gotta clean this up, Michael!


A_lot_of_arachnids

I was like "someone's gonna have to pick that up." Opened the thread and saw my name. So I guess I'm the asshole that gets to do it


slood2

What are you talking about? If your name is Michael then what he said wouldn’t mean “Michael” is cleaning it up . It meant he was going to. Plus it’s from “the office”


A_lot_of_arachnids

It's 5:30 am and I'm stoned. I have no other excuse


whiskeylover

Don't worry. That's a perfectly valid excuse.


Shilpanaik01

Yeah!


SitFlexAlot

From the what? Anyway Michael this message is for you, time to clean your room.


A_lot_of_arachnids

I don't wanna and you can't make me


SitFlexAlot

I can't, but HE can. *points toward a crowd of people* Shit where'd he go..


TennisForSavages

Hes talking about his name being the same as the one mentioned. Not that hard. Also, not everyone watches the office


MichaelW005

I'd never do this *ahem*


The_Amazing_Emu

Came here for this


TonyVeggies

lol underrated comment


iambeyoncealways3

DAMN IT MICHAEL


hmikey

Luckily they're the plastic pallets , but still gonna be a pain in the ass to restack them


L_Cranston_Shadow

They're light**er**, they are still a pain in the ass to move individually and stack. That's not to mention that they are just light enough that a small stack on a pallet jack will shift awkwardly in the worst way if you bump anything, especially if they aren't perfectly on the jack.


RolandTheJabberwocky

No splinters though, that's a big bonus I'd imagine.


L_Cranston_Shadow

It is, but the fact that they are reused more times than wood pallets means that they are more likely to be carrying something nasty too. One of the main reasons that it is tricky at best to reuse wood pallets, either commercially or for home projects, is that they can soak up things, which is less of an issue with plastics, but that still doesn't mean that they are exactly clean, and it's not like most places are willing to put in the time and effort to properly clean them between uses. Also, ABS or whatever plastic is used for them can splinter as the edges of the pallet break over time or the pallet breaks apart due to misuse or overloading, and plastic splinters hurt.


unique-name-9035768

> They're lighter, they are still a pain in the ass to move individually and stack. Doubly so since there's a thousand of them.


KrackenLeasing

A thousand-fold


kaasbaas94

I have dealed with multiple plastic pallets. Some are indeed lighter, but some are solid inside and will break your back. Like why the fuck?


Gronkonator3

Even the wooden pallets have quite a wide variation in weight for things that have pretty much identical dimensions.


Broppior

Wet pallets are the fucking worst


kmaffett1

Wet OAK pallets are the worst


12HpyPws

Blue CHEP pallets


Chrissyfly

Getting a new delivery of new dried chep pallets was always the highlight of my month, they were so light you could carry one on each shoulder... then we would leave them outside in the rain until we needed them


esq-with-a-habit

EU-pallets weighs 25kg (55 pounds) a piece. They are not fun to move manually en masse. At least they’re somewhat durable, compared to the alternatives.


Gronkonator3

Yeah. I remember they were not fun to stack in my early twenties when I weighed about 60kg, especially when they get to chest height.


Select_Shyn

Those ones can tolerate more weight on them.


L00pback

Weight plus repetitive motion. Yep, someone’s back is in for a lifetime of yoga.


mycatisabrat

Those darn blue wooden pallets are back breakers. "Hey new guy, that stack of blue pallets must be 10-high!"


oLegacyXx

Sure thing, let me get on my forklift


landragoran

No joke. If I have to move more than one pallet, you'd better believe I'm using a lift.


Cheef_Baconator

I shamelessly use the forklift for a single pallet if it's heavier than light af. I value my back much more than I value company propane.


KingGoatFury

Used to stack at least 500 a day 10 high on my own. I was not payed enough for that shit


tornado962

They’re not *that* hard to move. Use your legs and glutes and thrust it to the top.


_youmadbro_

Shift is over! See you tomorrow guys!


unique-name-9035768

No one is leaving until this mess is cleaned up! *managers and office staff still all leave at end of the day*


probabletrump

First shift is gonna be pissed when they show up in the morning.

If there's time to lean, then there's time to clean.


BertMacGyver

I was expecting New Guy to be stood at the end with a rake placed in such a way that the last pallet would land on it and make it spring up and hit him in the nuts. Kinda disappointed, not gonna lie.


L_Cranston_Shadow

Ahhh, Sideshow Bob!


depeupleur

Supervisor: I see you guys have some free time on your hands. Here’s a list of things that need to be done. Please start with the clogged toilets.


wasthatitthen

Was a world record attempt https://interestingengineering.com/video/watching-these-1377-plastic-pallets-topple-like-dominoes-is-incredibly-satisfying “The workers at Exporta Global have just set the world record for the most pallets toppled in a domino chain reaction. The product handling company used 1,377 pallets stacked on their end to create the record.”


Dyson04

Ahw, if only they used 40 less..


slood2

Why? I don’t get it Edit: I get it now


[deleted]

Because it would be 1337 pallets. And that would have been elite.


your_friendes

Sorry but why is 1337 significant?


goatharper

1337 was a thing for a while. Stood for "elite" cos "lEET" 1337. Happened when I was about 40 years old so a long time ago. Was for younger people than me at the time. Gamers.


EnglishMobster

I can't believe we've gotten to an era where 1337 is now "old people" slang. When did I get old? Why can't I be a 1337 haxx0r 4eva?


MetaKnightsNightmare

That's alright, I still refer to 13:37 as leet'o'clock Stay strong


shane_low

I'm glad to find another! I was the only one I knew all this while. I say "it's leet time"


MediumAwkwardly

I said “It’s leet o’clock!” to my niece once and she thought I said it was yeet o’clock. 🤦🏻‍♀️


pineapple_calzone

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking 1337


Brndrll

Was it the 20th of April, by chance?


forte_bass

God we're old. The fact that we even have to explain 1337 l33t, or leetspeak, oooof....


Still_No_Tomatoes

Our age is showing. The other day some guy six years younger than me call me a boomer. Fuckin n00b.


realityChemist

Tomatoes are most likely readily available at your local market


Sololop

As a Melinnial, this is gonna be my reply now to genZ's/zoomers who call me a boomer. Also my gamertag on battlenet was #1337 so I hold that dearly

it's the kids who are wrong we're still leet


Frosty-Cook-483

My 6 year old called me a "boon" the other day, because it was "noob" spelled backwards so it was newbier than a n00b.


DrMaxwellEdison

>When did I get old When I submitted a college paper with a copy written in 1337speak and the professor accepted it. That's when I knew I was old.


mcafc

I mean it’s not really. I am 23 and used 1337 as a kid.


l3e7haX0R

You rang?


891960

Ya old ppl slang, along with foobar. Ah to be in the era of dial up again... I don't miss it.


WinterWight

I think most people who used 1337 did so ironically. They were all unironically dorks, though.


theswerto

It was 100% not ironic for a minute there. Late 90s and early 2000s were uh, weird.


RobbyLee

1 123m3m13312 13412n1n6 70 w12173 10n6 455 73x75 1n 13375p34k 4nd d3c1ph3121n6 7h3 73x7s 1 607 53n7 4 fun (I remember learning to write long ass texts in leetspeak and deciphering the texts i got sent for fun)


Frosty-Cook-483

Jesus christ, how was I able to read that? I didn't even ride the 13375p34k train at the time. I barely know any pager code.


MontyDaKidd

So weird it’s not even funny when you look back 😂😂😂


PianoConcertoNo2

Not weird, we were just too busy talking to hot internet babes on AOL and IRC chat rooms to form full sentences. And hacking, of course.


helpless_bunny

It was interesting to watch the birth of a new language. At first it was alphabetical letters, then when we had access to all the keyboard letters of the world, we used those. You could create your name but in čöøł letters and still read it. Then the underground market used it to mask their activities because you can make it similar to graffiti.


Iamusingmyworkalt

I hate how often I start to use things ironically so much that it eventually becomes unironic.


lyvanna

I never realized leet was short for elite. Does that make 1337 5p34k elite speak.


WinterWight

Yeah


stairhopper

Yes, yes it does. I vaguely remember catching the tail end of it before it died off


alpacadaver

It never died. Dun Dun Dun

Iamusingmyworkalt

I saw a thread where a guy burned his thumb on a car cigarette lighter, with TONS of comments going: What was that thing and why does his thumb hurt? Made me feel so old and I'm still in my twenties.


RallyX26

Holy fuck I'm old


Sylvers

`"Leet (or "1337"), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is a system of modified spellings used primarily on the Internet. It often uses character replacements in ways that play on the similarity of their glyphs via reflection or other resemblance. Additionally, it modifies certain words based on a system of suffixes and alternate meanings. There are many dialects or linguistic varieties in different online communities."`

Holy fuck, am I that old now? Fml

Eh im in the same age group as when they were using that L337 a lot I just didn’t put it together


SuppleFoxFluff

Yeah was about to say - if this was simply a 'bored at work' scenario then this would straight up be fireable xD


wasthatitthen

They can probably charge more for a delivery on a world record holding pallet….


erynberry

It's a project I could see a marketing team putting together. It gets employees doing something fun and you end up with a very shareable video.


AnActualPlatypus

What a stupid world record category. Dominos I can understand, but by this logic, I can just have literally any objects toppled and claim it a new world record.


sumpuran

As long as you pay Guinness to come officiate, yes, you can claim it a new world record. That’s their business model.


stereoworld

Have a look at [Record Setter](https://recordsetter.com/) - people just submit random unofficial nonsense. Like "Longest Time Balancing An Electric Guitar On Chin While Lying On Back" or "Most Ice Cream Sandwiches Given Away While Jumping No Handed On A Pogo Stick"


wasthatitthen

I can’t say I find competitive eating a particularly wholesome activity, but people like to be best at something. Lots off oddball world records out there.

Is this even legal?


NotEven-Punk

Not in Canada, placing even one pallet like this can be a $500 fine


Concentrated_Lols

I was being silly, but TIL.


skanesandre

Huh, the things they don't teach you. We used to stand pallets up between other stacks all the time at the grocery store I worked at when I was younger


UmbraN7

Also a $1000 fine in the U.S.


beansinmysuitcase

50-7000 OSHA’s discretion.


UmbraN7

I'll be damned, good to know


beansinmysuitcase

Been doing warehouse shit for like 5 years off and on, had to watch a lot of corny ass videos. Thought they were bullshit until my coworker told me he watched someone get flattened by a falling pallet.


UmbraN7

Done it for a while as well. It's easy to laugh about regs... until you see someone's hand "get peeled like a grapefruit" in a conveyor one too many times


beansinmysuitcase

Oooof, yeah I’ve just been an order selector most of the time but I did man a saw at a fabrication warehouse and had a scare when the blade got too hot and snapped. That degloving shit looks brutal.


King_Of_Regret

Worked at a small custom fabrication joint for 2 years. Saw a dude get mashed by the cnc punch press. Dude survived crazily enough. Has a gnarly scar on his arm and right side.


agtmadcat

I feel like one time would be too many times for me personally.


UmbraN7

It really is. Unfortunately, these jobs have high turn over and low requirements, thus you get more sorry bastards who come in and have to learn it all over again


Gronkonator3

Even just working in a supermarket, I saw some dude have his leg broken by a pallet falling on him. Apparently they are more dangerous than mines. There was a hair-raising scream from the pasta aisle.


beansinmysuitcase

This was a full pallet from 30 feet up and reduced the guy to tomato paste. But vertical pallets are not only a trip hazard but they can also fuck you right up as you explained.


beansinmysuitcase

$50-$7000 fine per OSHA regulations in the US.


Herkerderker

I work at Walmart in the US and I'm told its a 2000$ fine per pallet.


Acheron9114

I will make it legal.

Vylmion

Pallet go brrrrrrrrrrrrrr


Batbuckleyourpants

That is the least secure logistic system i have ever seen and i worked at a sawmill where they essentially juggled saws. i love it.


Rematekans

Probably the only thing these types of pallets are good for. I come across two different types of black plastic pallets. IGPS, which seem to be ok except they have slippery surfaces and if you go around a corner at normal speed often times things slide off. Entire pallets of product on the ground. These look like the other type of black plastic. I don't know who makes them or if this is the same kind but they are significantly less sturdy than the IGPS because they're made with a lot less material in an X lattice structure. Either it breaks from even light loads or just is crushed by the warehouse equipment. I've had them snap in half or, the bottom snaps when being put in storage. Just a waste. If this video is seen by anyone in manufacturing, Please: If it weighs a ton or more, it needs to be on a pallet with 5 or more boards on the bottom to distribute the weight. Plastic pallets deform on warehouse rolling storage, and blue (chep) and red pallets don't have enough boards to support the weight unless it never sees a storage rack, or is light.


mossybeard

Blue and red don't have enough boards? Aren't those the best ones though? Unless I'm misunderstanding, I'm just a lowly produce boy, and you seem to know a lot about pallets. We get in tons (literal tons) of potatoes on blue and red


yeetfro

They do unless knocked broken idk which he's dealing with. I'll take Blue and Red chep pallets over the shitty white wood pallets. Or plastic ones any day.
