When I did deck work it was not unusual for for the concrete men to step on out conduits attempting to break the tie wires burying the conduit, making finishing easier.

Years ago when I was a 4th year apprentice and an almost uncontrollable hot-head......I punched out a concrete finisher for exactly that. They placed the concrete and cut my stub ups off before pouring so "they could finish thier work without my crap in his way"........his exact words.

His next words ......"I think you broke my nose":laughing:










The judge didn't think it was that funny.......glad I've settled down since then.

I wonder if the building was something else before it was a machine shop.

Usually, they have to lay footings for the machines, so they cut 4 x 6 foot holes, and pour them full.

Maybe they did that and added 6 inches of new concrete on top to give a complete level surface that would not crack the first time they got a steel delivery.

If you would consider working ad a lowly rat, ill get you hired.
Punching people for being stupid should not be a crime.
You should have gotten a reward, maybe now that idiot won't be so dumb.
Two weeks ago I almost got in a fight with the mason on our job.
The jackass kept tripping out the generator main. And finally he came over bitching about how he was going to keep using the same tools.
And I called him stupid and told him to not be so stupid, I was getting tired of bus stupidity!
He got the hint.
He's still.stupid . Just not using three grinders at once!
