the warehouse was well...a warehouse. seems like a place that one of batman's criminals would hide out in, or something. drums and bags and cartons of our products lined on racks. dunno if many of you are familiar with pallets. these are the platforms that product is shipped on. the platforms have two hollow recesses through the middle so a forklift can stick through. So these racks with pallets with product on top are 20-30 feet in the air. The little Nissan (the name Nissan means "Japanese Industry", BTW) forklifts run around, and the lift raises 30 feet in the air and slides into the pallet, (keep in mind, the pallets carry anywhere from 600-1800lbs) pulls it from the rack and gently sets it down. its just so strange to me that the pallet and lift are so agile and strong.
It's a beautiful day. I am lucky to have had the chance to be outside in it this morning, while still getting paid. I dont get back from lunch for another half an hour..so im hoping that the workday will swish by so i can get to the weekend.
