Job Insecurity: Forklift Operator Knocks Down Shelf After Shelf Of Goods Dominos Style

November 20, 2018

This is some security cam footage from a warehouse where a careless forklift operator sets off a chain reaction that knocks down shelf after shelf, spilling goods in a massive pile on the floor. Like the Energizer Bunny, it just keeps going and going and going. Admittedly, that seems like some pretty shoddy shelving to come down so easily though. Still, just like the time I was fired from that one nationwide restaurant chain with an Australian theme for reasons I can't disclose until the lawsuit is settled, it's probably best this forklift operator omit his most recent employer from his list of references.

Keep going for the whole video. It's a doozy.

Thanks to Josh J, who agrees that must have been glorious to see in person for everyone except the forklift operator.

    I used to work in warehouse like that. There should have been rail guides on the floor to prevent the forklift from hitting the racking. That’s what we had anyways. You can still hit it if you suck at operating the forklift.
    The racking is like snap on shelving. I’ve seen it buckle and fall after a hit, a section of a shelve fell and came to rest on the next row. Never seen that amount of damage, not like that. That’s was messed up!

    Those shelves on the left kept standing. So frustrating.

    Oh Cheese Whiz! He seemed to be doing a Gouda job. But the Provolone was
    when he hit the shelves. The boss is going to have a Chèvre reaction, as he says that's Nacho Cheese and will cost him a lot of Cheddar!

    Yes, this was pretty Cheesy!

    I bet it was a government conspiracy. No way the shelves fall like that without explosives already rigged and ready to collapse within seconds of another. #neverforget

    Geekologie message boards if I come in SECOND

    So he probably gets fired, when the structural engineer of those shelves or owners of the warehouse should be at 100% fault.

    I think my favorite part was the whole 25 second build up with the forklift coming down that long fucking aisle, from way off in the distance, driving mostly straight the entire way, with just a slight angle towards the end... then *boop* END OF TIMES.

    Damn, he barely bumped that thing and it went down. Sure isn't the driver's fault. Give that man a (postmortem presumably?) medal for finding that problem before someone (else) got seriously injured or killed!

    Those shelves were either improperly constructed, improperly installed, or simply overloaded. There's no way they should have dominoed like that.

  • minime

    Is visible they were overloaded AF. I wonder what the product on them was.

  • Douchy McDouche

    9/11 conspiracy confirmed!

    How awesome would it have been if all of those boxes were gift sets of dominoes?

  • abcdefgjklmnopqruvwxyz

    Reality is amusing enough. It's cheese.

  • Tigerh8r

    Seriously?! That makes the whole thing seem pretty suspicious ... I think I smell a rat! ;)

  • Ry Keener

    Looks like everyone is having scrambled eggs for dinner tonight!

  • Chris Michaels

    how has there not been any Polish forklift driver jokes???

  • Snoowy

    Oh Klaus

  • AKlium

    Klaus!!!!

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Who wants to bet that the shelves were overloaded to begin with? This is what you get when you keep demanding just a little more space efficiency here, a little more overtime there. Gotta meet those self-imposed quotas! Come on, everybody, we're a team!

    I love that the related videos are a cruise ship destroying a whole Marina, a pool delivery crane destroying an entire house, and a guy breaking 1 apartment window.

    🎶1 of these things is not like the others🎵

  • Michael Knight

    wonder what that sounded like in the front office.
    looks like those packages wont make it by christmas.
