now I get a written warning in my permanent record
What knife was it? And where do you work?! I've been "spoken to" about knives at work, but most of the management turns to me when they need something cut of lit up.
benchmade griptillian. large corporate environment in houston, tx.
how am I supposed to cut fruit, open packages, etc?!
i hope someone asks me for a knife now. I feel like going off on a rant to everyone in this building!
Easy, just have at hand a little multitool knife with a nailfile, like a Victorinox classic or so, very cheap and discrete, and that's it.
why would you clean your nails with a sharp blade?
Use the right tool for the job
+2. Why draw the attention to yourself? Rules are rules. If you don't like them, you can always start your own business and set your own employee handbook up.
I agree. A proper grooming tool has much less chance of accidental injury and will do a better job. I use the A.G.Russell clippers, but Tweezerman makes a similar pair that is cheaper.
In today's paranoid PC world you have to adapt to the changes. Several years ago I stopped carrying a 3.5" blade to work and downsized to a small 2" blade. Even that raised a few brows when I snapped it open to cut up some cardboard. It was a little Kershaw Scallion. Rather than risk causing anyone any unnecessary concern, I've since switched to a Victorinox Cadet for all my office cutting needs. I also keep a Leatherman Wave in my pack. So far no worries.
suprising that you got an written permanent record for that.. would of imagined they would of just given an verbal "slap-on-the-wrist".. (if it were the 1st time it was mentioned/reprimanded to you..)
and i also personally wonder who over there was so worried of you going mental stabbing mode instantly endagering everyone near you while cleaning your nails with an knife, enough so that they had to report it to someone. how nice comradery spirit.
i understand that there must be some rules and they should be obeyed.. but still.. it sometimes is jut ridiculous how big of a deal some of these things become.
and sorry to hear too.
if i would have seen someone in a corporate environment cleaning his nails with a knife i would think hes an idiot. a big one. thats my opinion.
At my last workplace, a huge editorial office, there was this guy who carried his tablet pc everywhere he went. Including the loo. Now, that is considered 'modern' and 'normal', and someone using a sub-3" blade is an 'idiot'? I wouldn't think so.
If the business / jurisdiction has written regulations about this issue, he made a mistake, possibly a big one. But that still does not make him an 'idiot'.
Always know your audience.
That's not normal where I'm from!
I wouldn't say pulling out a knife was idiotic, per se, but it did show poor judgement, especially in view of the context. Had it been a fancy slip-joint, or even an SAK, it probably wouldn't have ruffled any feathers. Live and learn...
I recommend grooming at home before you go to work.
I knew a guy that trimmed his nails only at work so he wouldn't get them in his carpet at home.
Did he time his bowels for 9-5 to save on TP? ;-)
At my jobsite,
any knife of any length
means instant job termination,then being escorted off the property by Police for questioning....plus likely loss of an individual's State Licensure.
Which means your college degree just went bye-bye.
No...he waited till after hours. Said "nothin' like a good dump on overtime".....
Perchance what do do Gnarly?
