I'm lucky, OSHA always comes to me, I have no reason to visit them. They always bring good advice like "put a ground on your steel benches" I say I have like twenty benches..are you serious? They say "fire extinguishers can't be any higher that 52 inches" I say mine are 53 1/2 inches.. shall I move all thirty of them..it'll be no trouble to re-weld all the brackets to the I beams after I cut them off. They say "all lifts must have a safety that engages no higher than twelve inches" I say "my lifts go up 6 feet, why would I go under one when it's twelve inches high?"

I have minimized their visits though. I've found if I start crying and screaming every time they come, they come less and leave faster.
