Five Construction Horror Stories:
No construction job is perfect, but some are worse than others and these five construction horror stories prove it.
We’ve all had the projects that just never seemed to end, or had to deal with the client from hell who just won’t stop breathing over our neck. For some of us, it’s a tyrant of a boss who makes every single moment on the job like a living hell.
Regardless, we still wanted to know your construction horror stories. So we took to our great Facebook community to find the answers.
1. Dinner For One:
None of us would be complaining if the boss decided to take us out for a meal. Hell, even a cup of coffee in the morning would be great. Jon’s boss, however, takes the cake (and a few other courses) for being an arrogant bum.
2. Nailed It:
Elijah’s horror story is also about his boss (should we be surprised?). However, in his case, it was more than just missing out on dinner. Poor Elijah ended up in a fair amount of pain simply because his boss couldn’t look after his own tools.
3. Are You Missing Something?
Rob’s story proves that even the most experienced trades person can sometimes be careless. We just hope the machinist stopped to clean up his own mess before someone else found it.
4. Bless You:
Here at Trade Hounds, we couldn’t care less about what you believe. You could have a shrine to Tom Brady in the back of your truck and make daily sacrifices to it for all we care (we may or may not do this ourselves). James’ boss, on the other hand, was not so accepting…
5. Family Ties:
For us, this one is perhaps the scariest thing that can happen to anyone. We hope Jim can make it through this.
BONUS – What day off?
This one was a late entry and just too good to leave out! We reckon Teto handled this one pretty well.
We know that these are just a few of the many horror stories out there. Feel free to post your best worst story in the comments below, or send us a message on Facebook!
