Chrysler beer and refer

Ok today it was all over the news about the Chrysler employees drinking LARGE beers at lunch and what appeared to be refers

SO these guys got caught and sped off to go back to work


soooooo ask yourself about the safety of the vehicles these people that were probably under the influence are now putting vehicles together and sending them on down the line to dealers and roadways near your family.

lets not forget the police that ride around in patrol cars that were possibly assembled by these person


so your in traffic and BAM your hit by a Chrysler product.....its determined a bolt for the steering was not installed correctly...and just killed your passengers as the car slams into and it was discovered the bolts were installed ..by .....you guessed it MR. beer at lunch...


I worked many assembly lines and i know folks may or may not take a drink at lunch and its in no way condoned.

so we as non Chrysler driving persons should file a class action suit against Chrysler for allowing unsafe vehicles on the road.

or should maybe the NTSB immediately name all Chrysler vehicles built in the last year as UNSAFE and have them removed from the roads.
imagine the chaos.

or can we have our money back


I think tomorrow i will visit a Chrysler dealer and ask if their vehicles are safe, since they were built by intoxicated people

Just think about how many pilots have been seen in the bar before flights or stopped just before getting airborne in the recent past.

I am sure it is prevelant in all things and Chrysler is probably not the only one but I am sure they do more than their fair share of dubie. Just look at the Pontiac Aztec and the PT Looser, oops I mean Cruiser. Someone had to have been smoking dope to come up with those two POSs and others. Someone over at Toyota was definatly blitzed when they designed the FJ Looser oops I mean Cruiser.

I have been aircrew that prolly shouldn't have climbed in.due to a large amount of adult beverages and burritos in my system...but i was just riding in the back of bus passing wind

i think getting caught on tape is absolutely PRICELESS

you forgot about the cadillac cimmaron (gussied up cavalier)

lol, you know how many Boeing employees have had liquid lunches in the past?

I'd be more worried about that.

i'm wondering how prevelent it really is. i worked in oil refining for 40 year. the first few years, a bottle would show up in the shop area. the last 15 yrs or so, it was extremely rare. u had a good chance of being talked to by ur fellow employees or being caught on a random drug test.
if ur coworker didn't get ur attention, it wasn't long before one of those randoms wasn't so random.

the co policy was that if u had a problem and came to them, (before u were caught) they would send u for treatment. when u came back, they would call u at odd times for a random...days off and all.

i also noticed that very few didn't wind up failing within the first 6mos and lost their job. i knew of abt a dozen that went thru the program in the last 15 yrs. i know of only 1 that suceeded.

i don't know what we fell under...interstate commerce or what, but it was mandated that we have random drug test. if it isn't like that in the auto industry, i'm wondering why not?
with us, they would tollorate .01 and may not send u home. above that, u were taken home then they would call u in and talk to you. i believe .04 was automatic termination. illegal drugs in ur system were automatic termination. any perscription drug u took had to be cleared thru medical (at work). if u were caught with a controled substance even if perscription and it wasn't approved (type and amt) you were gone.

Ever go by Electric Boat in Groton, CT at lunchtime? I spent three plus years of my life in submarines built by drunks. Pride in workmanship is sometimes measured by the number of empty bottles left on the floor after lunch. As consumers, we do not always want to know who is putting our stuff together. Wonder if my TT was assembled by someone that had a few??? Might explain some is the warranty users......

It makes me wonder how many of you fine, upstanding citizen campers out there sneak alcoholic beverages of some type into state parks, where it is forbidden?? Just saying, looking in the mirror, sometimes the accuser is just as guilty as the accusee! Just a thought.....
