Totally agree about the operation of machine etc. We talked about lifting at work. I didn't picture those kinds of heavy lifts you do, but for those out slamming down a beer or 2 at lunch, it in the same category. Drinking does not mix!
We have a reporter, and there was also a national reporter who were tailing people like our Water and Power workers, and the Detroit auto workers, to locations where they slammed down a few lunch beers, and returned to work. I was never one to go out at all for lunch at work, but we had those groups that daily, were at the local Mission Burrito, having a liquid lunch, and coming back to the shops for work. Surprised they never clamped down on it, other than monitoring the gates for early leavers, and late returners. The reporters in question, caught them red handed, and they had some real explaining to do with the employer. I think now because that story was all over our news, they are thinking twice about their lunch breaks.
A also agree about supporting the independent people, and the Mom and Pop businesses are a dying breed today. It is so expensive to compete when chains are buying in mass quantity. The one thing I loved about visiting my Grandmother when she lived in Ohio were those kinds of p laces, real home cookin places were common, and may just be a small place out of town on the county roads, off the beaten paths. We really do not have those kinds of places out here.
One I can think of is on our drive out to our daughters, oddly a place called "Grandma", but even that place in not like the places I found in the mid west.
