I worked for a guy in college who did construction work. One day he bought a mildly damaged trailer that only need a pro to repair (hitch area was bent and needed replaced). The guy went out and borrowed an arc welder from his elderly father, and did it him self. So after I was fired for refusing to tow the unsafe shit job of a trailer, it was wrecked by the guy who took my spot and he was fired by the guy who owned the company (who did the "repair"). He then "fixed" it again, and took it to be inspected so it could be tagged and from what I was told and saw later, it was and is still sitting at the side of his yard rusting away. The guy still is doing home improvement, just not welding anymore.
