If the guy who drives the forklift tells you to get out of the way, you get out of the bloody way!

And no, it doesn’t matter what you were doing or who you actually answer to. He’s in a forklift.

If the guy driving the forklift has to tell you to get out of the way, consider leaving the warehouse. One shouldn't step in a warehouse unless they are hyper-aware of their surroundings.

If I have a stop sign, and you don't, that means YOU go first. Stopping, and thus stopping the cars behind you, and waving at me to go is foolish. The driver ended up waiting for about 20 seconds, then flicking me off as he finally went.

One of my favorite videos; and we actually use it at work as part of forklift training (an addendum, not the official part).

I knew it was going to be Klaus before I even clicked the link.

We actually discussed this video way back when I was relatively new to this board. I'm slightly surprised you use it for real training because it is, of course, not a real training video but rather a parody of training videos. Ok, you did say it's not in the official part of the training.

It's the basically humorous, over-the-top "icebreaker" intro vid for those who are seeking the basic forklift certification. A lot of the people on the job (fire department) aren't really interested in certain aspects of the job - for instance, historically, dedicated fire fighters are often uninterested in the EMT/paramedic side of the job, even if it's a necessary part of the job - so grabbing their interest with Klaus and his antics really helps them go through the rigorous half-hour actual training video and 25-question quiz. And the video isn't exactly lacking in some real-world information about the dangers and consequences of forklift operation; it's just more so.

Well, we can't do ALL the heavy lifting.

Does... does that count in the pun rankings?
