Climb out on a ledge in order to weld a beam no harness 50 feet up, nothing to hold onto once my welding helmet goes down and i lean over. I got out there and couldn't make myself let go. I was walking on a 3" wide beam. I failed. my scared ass had to get another idiot to do it. lol

I worked in starting based organisation. There were v.less seniors. So, if there is any issue, I alone did R&D and resolved it. Though, I took time to resolved, but that made me aware of many scenerios and gave confident boost.

Travel to Hawaii to fire a rep. It was bad because there was no time to stay and relax. The owner insisted that I return immediately!

Had to terminate a female employee who was badly injured from a fire. It had been proven via testimony to us that she covered herself with gasoline and lit it off to get even with a boyfriend, but she said it was due to an accidental kitchen fire. Fire Marshall report also verified she was not telling truth. Our policy said no coverage from 'self-inflicted' incidents and she had lied to us about the cause of the fire. As I told her she was being terminated, I was looking at a melted face, and compresses on each of her arms, and in a torso cast. This was three months post incident and investigation. You don't feel good after a day like that one!
