What is it with people ? FFS, Jesus H Christ
At work, cleaning a very very cruddy conveyor belt, so you have to attack it with a plan and some common sense.
Give it a quick wash to hopefully loosen some of the grime, then soak with industrial detergent for maybe 1/2 hour, let that work its way in.
Then pressure wash the worst away, soak with detergent again and repeat.
No no...thats just too much for some (most) workers. Instantly start pressure washing it to kingdom come...with NO chance of it working. They'd stand there all day doing it and getting nowhere.
So i soak it with detergent and say 'leave it for a while, let it soak in'
Less than 2 minutes later, he's got the pressure washer on it, blasting away the detergent that has'nt had a chance to work in yet.
'Give it a while'...'yeah'ok'...2 minutes later....he's at it again, pressure washing like his life depends on it Every time i turn my freekin back !!!!!
He's still at it now, 2 minutes after i told him its clean enough.
There's something about them...i watched a guy washing some equipment laid against a wall, so vigorously and for so long, he'd started washing the mortar out of the bricks. FFS !!!!
It's nice and easy you see, its kinda exciting (thats all i can presume) and its better than standing there and just waiting for the detergent to do its stuff, or better than using a bit of elbow grease and working....
Its amazing to see how many guys behave like this....i'm nothing special, but a bit of common sense please...please. Someone save me from these fcukwits.
