This actually happened yesterday, but I didn't get the picture till today.
If you've been around a while, you'll remember that I was pretty happy when I was trained to operate the forklift at work.
As it has turned out, I don't get many opportunities to drive it because my role as "lead bundler" means that I'm almost always busy at a job that can't be left too easily when we get calls to go unload a truck. As a result, I'm ok, but not expert at using it. I just don't get enough practice.
You may or may not remember that the forklift pictured that day was yellow. A few months ago, the paper got another forklift. This one is orange. The yellow one now stays in our room and the orange one stays in the warehouse to unload trucks. Everyone hates it. I've heard a lot about it, but had never driven it.
But yesterday, I was the very last one there, and the office called for someone to unload a truck. So, I had to face the orange beast and make it work.
Much to my surprise, I didn't hate it at all. Maybe I just got lucky, but it worked fine for me, and I had to unload four pallets. A nice confidence booster for a skill I don't use too much.
