So, Monday morning starts with a bang. A customer phones at 7H30 and totally does her nut. It's F*ck this & F*ck that and your service is sh!t and and and...I think that she must have a terrible hangover from the weekend. Then another customer arrives and we spend a couple of hours trying to see why the one laser doesn't cut 100% all the time but only 99.9% some of the time...
..and lo and behold...one staff member comes running in, smoke billowing as he opens the door, and tells us that the other laser is on fire....uh...ok...thankfully my Zim guy had the sense to hit the emergency stop and put the fire out with the dry powder fire extinguisher.
What did we learn today...
1. Monday sucks!...but then we all know that!
2. Sh1t happens very quickly.
3. Never leave a machine unmanned... (thankfully the one laser is in the same workshop as the staff and the other laser is right next to me)
4. Don't mess around when it comes to fire safety....That fire would have burnt the entire place down in no time at all if it wasn't for Samuel and the fire extinguisher.
