Farmhands best practice
A farmer being attended to by a junior doctor at a casualty
department for a broken wrist was asked the standard question "How
did you get the injury." He replied that he would tell the truth but
you are not going to believe it.
Finishing some work in the cow shed he walked back over the yard
towards his house when he noticed a stone in his boot. Just as he
bent down to get the stone out, it started to rain heavily. He
hopped into the nearest doorway and continued to shake his foot to
move the stone.
A farmhand walking into the yard sees him with one hand resting on
the electrical terminal box twitching his leg like a mad man. It
looked like his boss was being electrocuted so he grabbed a lump of
wood and following best safety practices "Broke contact" by whacking
the farmers hand away from the electrical source.
His next job was to drive his boss to the hospital.
