You Gents are lucky, snapped My Achilles tendon 2 weeks ago. Had surgery and now confined to the recliner for 8 weeks at least. Shop is in basement, 10 feet away and I am not allowed in. Plenty of work as Spring time is here. I get to watch through the window.

Worked at a place that used Alodine on Aluminum. Quit the process and discarded the solution down the drain. About a week or 2 later the Sewage police knocked on the door and asked to see the floor drain in the place. Guy said Yep it's here. Boss said "whats up?". They said "someone dumped acid down the drain". We said "not Here." They said "look here, the acid cleaned up the rusty iron and did it out 1/2 mile away." Asked around and Someone else out of the Department did it after stepping in the pan of it in the dark, after being somewhere They were not supposed to be.It had to fill Their shoe up and where They took a step it ate into the cement floor. Sewage Cop laughed and said don't do it again.

There are more lawful ways to earn a daily crust. I am not an overly worried animal lover, but on a game preserve it's wrong. The animals won this one.
