This idiot just made twice as much work for himself as he originally had -- and in the process likely broke something.

and if there was a party member on board that plane, or that sees this video, then he likely will be disappeared for doing that.

Explains what happens to guitars.

There must be something about this type of job that makes these people just want to break things.
 
2013-06-17 07:58:15 PM
wow that guy was taking out some frustration on those boxes.

What a farktard... putting the boxes on the belt properly would have used a lot less energy/effort.

This shiat happens everywhere though... ive had the USPS break seemingly unbreakable items plenty of times.

Now, remember that there's also a guy on the other end of that conveyer belt, loading the boxes into the plane's hold. Rest assured, he likes his job just as much as the guy in the video.

Which kind of makes you wonder what the value is of off-loading and on-loading those boxes one-at-a-time. Why not shrink wrap a pallet, push the whole thing up into the plane's hold, and stow it? I know some of those holds aren't very big, but even 2 or 6 or 10 shrink-wrapped pallets would be easier to load than 120 individual boxes.

This is what I was wondering. Is that guy in deep shiat, or is the American way of doing things now the norm in China?

When shipping anything, always pack it in a way to survive this kind of experience because your package will likely go through something similar at least once along the way.

There's something fascinating about anyone who openly treats their job with undisguised contempt. No false politeness, no fake smiles, and they neither do it accurately and sarcastically or poorly and politely. When a McDonald's employee spits in your food, he's at least hoping you won't notice the loogie until it's too late. The person who comes to work in his pajamas at least has to be admired for not just wearing his despair on his sleeve, but doing so in a fashion that amuses others and maybe helps him blow off steam. Until the boss finds out.

As I was typing that, though, I realized there was another possibility - that this is the relatively simple-minded little brother of a higher-up who goes to work every day beaming "I have job!" and whose co-workers are used to following resignedly behind him and cleaning up the mess. I don't know how eager China is to tout its high employment rate (or even if it has one) but this matches some kind of outreach program as much as it does a neglectful worker...

The pallet he unloads them from is meant for a wide body plane.  Cargo holds on narrow body planes can't handle pallets, and he is loading a narrow body A320.  He is probably pissed at the dispatcher who had him load the wide body pallet, and then made him unload it into an A320.

When checking a bag or shipping FedEx/UPS, expect a 10ft drop onto concrete.  Even if some ramp ape doesn't chuck your package/luggage off the plane, the sorting facilities are full of nice impacts from hydraulic hammers and other sorting equipment.

That's why they are called "throwers". Also, we only refer to those as "the" boxes, not "your" boxes.

You should only ship or check Telecasters. Those things are so sturdy, being manhandled in such a fashion just adds a bit of character. Probably won't even knock it out of tune.

Y'know, there are similar responses in the comments on that article, but the simple fact is that it still doesn't excuse his deliberate attempt to damage each & every box on that pallet.

The benefit, hopefully, is that his supervisor will recognize him in that video and send him packing.

Even though it was insured, I sent a Shakuhachi USPS (double bubble wrapped in their own priority box) to a customer. When he received it the flute looked like it had exploded. The pics he sent me showed Tire marks on the box.
Someone actually ran the thing over (probably with a fork lift) and still shipped it. WTF?

See, now I'm just picturing an A320 with a hold full of loose boxes sliding around like some kind of hydro-simulation. Not heavy enough to bring down the plane, just heavy enough to spook the pilot.

Smaller jets don't have large cargo doors. That's why on 737s and smaller they have to manually load/unload individual pieces.

THIS!

This is standard operating procedure for people who load airplanes. Your luggage is handled the same way. It doesn't get destroyed from being placed nicely on the belt.

Reminds me of my days back working shipping for Dell.

Monitor bowling was fun, and an effective way to disperse the monitors off the pallet before loading onto the conveyor belt.

My career of fixing computers after that is probably some sort of karmic payback.

Are we certain this isn't a video of the USPS?  Seriously, last 3 boxes from Amazon have practically fallen apart after the tape on top is cut, they were smashed to hell.  Fortunately I wasn't purchasing anything fragile.

I've seen that at ORD.  I saw a bag fall under conveyer truck and get driven over, ripped open, tied together with twine and then thrown on the plane at MSP.  I went to baggage claim after the flight even though I hadn't checked any baggage just to see what would happen.  Sadly this was in the days I was carrying a Motorola Star-Tac, so no camera.
