We Tanned His Hide When He Died Clyde And That's It Hanging On The Shed

Me and a helper were hanging a support rack for a datacenter we are setting up.

I said, "Let me check this other support so we can make them the same... it should be 6" off the wall."

My helper adjusted the support and then said, "The closest I can get it to the wall is 6" 1', it won't go any closer."

I said, "I guess we'll just have to live with that then."

There was a guy with a thick accent working on some air conditioning units nearby. He overheard us and said, "6" 1'? That's a bunch of BS. That's unacceptable. Your work is crap."

I said to my helper, "I think we're going to need to kill this guy. He knows too much."

The A/C guy said, "I knew I never should have moved to this country."

My helper said, "I don't know if we'll be able to. He's from Australia. He grew up around wombats and all kinds of deadly animals."

I said, "That's not a problem. You just need to fight like a kangaroo."

I was worried that I might have offended the aussie but he was laughing hard enough that I didn't worry long.
