    Default be careful out there!

    working in my basement remodel today. set the shower in structurelite. poured self leveling compound on bath floor. went to pull a 5/8 x 9 x 14' flitch plate thru a window with a rope. sure enough right after i tell my helper to expect the rope to break it does. i go flying back to the ground and wack my back across a lolly collumn. (the one i'm taking out!) OOOUCH! not too bad. shook it off and installed the 400lb plate. backs getting a little tight. try to do more, no way. hit the whirlpool for a while, no better. hopefully tomorrow morning i wont have pain. cause the wife finds sympathy between shit and suicide in the dictionary! one thing i always worried about being in my own business is getting hurt (which doesnt happen often). so just a reminder to pros.
    careful out there.

    It sucks when you get hurt.
    One of the things I always worry about, is learning how to work with new people.
    Some novices like to show off and do their end quicker, making it harder for the other person.
    Some fight you for control as you're lifting.
    It takes some time to develop some body communication for jobs.

    If I do have soreness, "days" after the muscles should have healed, I consider my friend in the back business.
