- Today is safety training day. Toby is leading ours upstairs.

- Eugh. But! I am giving everyone a little bit of a treat.

- We are going to listen in on Darryl's presentation to the warehouse and if I know Darryl,

it gonna be something.

- Now, this is the forklift.

- You need a license to operate this machine. That means the upstairs office workers can't drive it.

- Quiz, Mike. Should you drive the forklift?

- I can and I have to -- - No, no no no no no.

- I said should you. You should not drive it.

- You should not drive the forklift. - You're not allowed to drive the forklift.

- It's not safe; you don't have a license.

- Guys, I'm not the only one who's driven the forklift.

- Pudge has driven the forklift. - Madge.

- I thought your name was Pudge.

- No, it's always been Madge. - Okay.

- Um, her.

- Her. Yes, her is qualified to work a dangerous machine. You are not.

- Okay? - Alright.

- Fine. - Do you understand that?

- Yeeesh.

- We do safety training every year or after an accident.

- We've never made it a full year.

- This particular time, I was reaching for a supply box on the top shelf

when one office worker who shall remain nameless,

kicked the ladder out from under me and yelled,

- "Hey Darryl, how's it hangin'?!"


- And I fell and busted my ankle.

- I'm legitimately scared for my workers.

- The baler can flatten a car engine.

- It can cut off your arm and crush your entire body without skipping a beat. - Yeah!

- How many people a year do you think get their arms cut off in a baler?

- Bail her? I hardly know her. - Damn it, Michael. Pay attention, man.

- Anybody want to take a guess? Anybody? - Five bucks says it's over fifty.

- You really want to bet? - Anybody?

- Ever since March Madness ended, I am so bored. - How many?

- Okay, well...

- Ten people, Michael, ten people. Would you like to be one of them?

- No, don't worry about it, we'll just go double or nothing.

- On what? - I don't know, something else. - What are you guys talking about?

- These are very dangerous machines down here and the upstairs workers -- Michael --

should not go anywhere near them.

- Yes, yes, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world --

- It would be the worst thing in the world. It would. Very much so. - What the hell is wrong with this man?

- It's a big red trash compactor! - What are you --

- It's not a trash compactor! [arguing]

- I got it, I got it. Only on the rarest of occasions --

- No, do not touch the -- there is no occasion for you to go near this stuff, okay?
