    Sorry but it IS true. I don't think the kid came back to finish school that year. I agree POPEYE, I would think it's just a matter of time before there was a screwup.

    What advantage was there to extinguishing the flame on your clothes. The gas still needed to be turned off after the flame was extinguished?.

    How stupid could this guy be? It wouldn't occur to him that the, other side, of what he was welding might be getting Really Hot???
    Have a guy inside pouring water if you aren't going to take the carpets out.

    He had to be a newbie if he didn't know you cannot weld on something paper-thin with a carpet on the other side.

    I went to a junk yard to get a seat belt to replace the failing retractor mechanism for an old Explorer I wanted to keep going for another couple years. Found the right part and the guy in the shop removed it from the vehicle by torching it out. Ayup, right through the seat belt too, totally trashing it. How dumb can you be to torch out a fabric part? I left without my part...

    That would scare the hell out of me. I'm sure I would have been pitching water on the tire because logic would go out the window.
