If you don't immediately and aggressively state the baseline politics of any environment, conservatives will do it for you

Got the tyre cage stuck on the forks of the merlo, and had to do a bunch of wiggling to get it free again.
Then started getting a load of shit from the boss' son about my driving; which lead to the following exchange:
