While at work yesterday I drove past a handful of contractors fighting with a piece of rail equipment. They were trying to get a 18,000lb machine up a small incline and on to a set of railroad tracks. I asked if they could use a hand and they said they needed alot more than one more guy, so I drove past. I came back a few minutes later with a 80 ton mobile crane and asked if they still didn't think one more guy could help. I set up lifted it 60' in the air over some structure and set it on the tracks. While I was tearing down the rig a little, old mexican guy comes up and slaps a $50 in my hand. I declined and tried to explain that it wasn't necessary and he kept pushing towards me and saying "beer on me". I tried to give it to one of crew members and was told that he would get offended if I didn't take it and that he has always done this type of thing. Well one good deed deserves another so I just helped to support teh HAMB and got an Alliance membership to boot! Maybe I should take a buck and buy a lottery ticket tonight!
