Rules are Rules – AND DON’T YOU FORGET IT!!!

- 16 June 2013, 07:06

“The ones that don’t question the rules end up making rules.”





Begin forwarded message:

The Good news:
It was a normal day in Sharon Springs, Kansas, when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina.



The Bad news:
Just a few miles into the trip a wheel bearing became overheated and melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail, creating white hot molten metal droppings spewing down to the rail.

The Good news:
A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train and immediately stopped the train in compliance with the Governmental Regulations.

The Bad news:
The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge with creosote ties and trusses. When the crew tried to explain to higher-ups they needed to move the train, they were instructed not to move the train because Federal Regulations prohibit moving the train when a part is defective.

The pictures tell the rest…. As always, the Government knows what is best for us!

Don’t ever let common sense get in the way of a Government Regulation.

It’s always a scary day when the government is in charge!

Und sie sitzen auch bei uns wieder am Werk: in Bern an der Sommersession!


Reminds me of when I was younger. I was asked in school and elsewhere for that matter that great rhetorical question:
“Just who do you think you are to question the rules???”
The ones that don’t question the rules end up making rules like this.
