Am I the only Farker who's had a job changing tires?

It was a mix of heavy lifting and just sweeping shop.  I'm not sure if it would be considered "hard labor," but it certainly required decent strength.

Bottom line, I wouldn't try robbing a place full of wrench monkeys.  No matter how "laborious" their job is considered.

Obvious pun is obvious, but I still larfed.

I worked in one too. I wouldn't characterize it as heavy labor.

smitty04: The local tire shop employs little short Mexicans that speak no English. I suspect that the only criteria is they are willing to work cheaply.


FTFY

This one certainly didn't :)

As always, a lot of this may vary from shop to shop. The big tire and repair shop about a mile away uses pneumatic tools for everything, and most of their staff don't look like they can so much as lift the tire themselves. The little hole-in-the-wall near my house? One guy and his son, they only take cash, and the guy reminds me of an Arabic version of the mechanic from Fight Club- looks like a telephone pole. Wiry but strong as hell.

Same thing in construction and fabricating. The shop I worked in was the family business, and basically everyone there can bench a Jeep. The big-name chain contractor? Lot more guys, but a lot less ability and power.

You can say that again. He still hasn't received his complementary rear-end alignment... yet.

No you are not. I tried to forget that summer.
My favorite was the garbage trucks with the moving rice all over the suspension. Can't stand rice to this day. Did get to see a dump truck tire blow in the safety cage, the noise was deafening.

Bolded for TRUTH!! I wasn't a tire guy, but I was a truck mechanic for many years and ABSOLUTELY HATED working on trash trucks!!  You could spend an hour steam cleaning those farking things, come back the next morning and maggots every god damn place.....farking nasty!

Yeah.  It was laborious at times, but definitely not a constant "hard" or "heavy" labor type of job.  I did get pretty ripped during my time there, though.  Those tires won't stack themselves.  Oh and I hated lifting the big truck tire/wheel assemblies.  Those biatches were heavy.

I had a love/hate relationship with that job.  I don't regret doing it, but there were plenty of times I didn't want to go.

Also don't steal from Arabs who probably immigrated from war zones and aren't intimidated by loud yelling and threats of weapons.

I could see that.  My wife's cousin worked in a walmart tire shop and my lil bro worked for sears as a tire tech.  The cousin wussed out when helping me move heavy furniture for his aunt/my mil.  Lil bro came up here and decided he could take older bro in a fight.  He is 6'1", I am 5'9", he cried afterwards.  Unlike them, when I rotate my tires I use a breaker bar.

That was my thought regarding some posts in this thread... Are all of you people tech nerds who's worst enemy is carpal tunnel syndrome?

And therefore you feel qualified to comment so vehemently?

Tires aren't light even off the rim, impact wrenches aren't for the effeminate of wrist. And while it may not be swinging a pickaxe in the salt mines of Siberia, it's not exactly cubicle work either. I'm a big, strapping guy, but I feel pretty satisfied after doing a tire rotation.

agreed. when I had my 215/35/18 BFG KDW mounted it took 4 guys to get the bead on the rim, 3 with breaker bars turning red as they worked it on the rim and one guy standing on the top of the rim clamp machine pushing down on the bead with his whole body weight.

maxheck: Three guys once scaled the fence at a ship bunkering client of mine... The night watchman just called down to the dormitory and a half dozen big longshoremen came charging out with implements of destruction. One of the thieves panicked so badly he tried to climb over razor wire... That didn't go well.


Kinda surprised that didn't break any union rules. :-)

Le perp - have to scroll down a page to see him and his record.

6' 4", 250 pounds. Paroled in January after doing 10 years for kidnapping and aggravated assault.  Two prior sentences for burglary and theft.

Csb: The shipyard at which I work 3rd shift had some guys sneak in, we think they were going for tools and whatnot. Just so happened that some of my crewmen and I came around the corner carrying chainpulls, sledgehammers, and various other blunt instruments...those guys took off running, didn't even manage to break into the tool room.

Hate to say it, but you seem very concerned if anyone breaks rules. It's almost like there's a pattern.

In case you were wondering, the first two would-be thieves had the sense to just give up and wait an hour for the police. The guy who tried to go over the razor wire spent an hour waiting for the paramedics to pick him gently and with much surgery off said razor wire.
/ cannot even look at razor wire without getting the heeby-jeebies.

M-G: Also, subby, changing car tires isn't really what I'd consider 'heavy labor.'


Do you know how I can tell that you're not a tire changer guy?
Have you ever removed and replaced a wheel on your car?

Naah, outside Nashville. It did run along a parallel with a previous CSB in this thread, which is what brought it to mind.
