Other than a few people, most of my coworkers know very little about me. I like to keep my personal life separate from my work life.
I wish work would show me the same respect and only send me work-related emails instead of emails on Firework Safety. “Handles fireworks” is not in my job description.
Why does work assume that I will shoot off my own fireworks tomorrow?
- Never use fireworks in your home. Always set them off outside on a driveway or sidewalk. Last year Kiefer showed us that even outside is a bad idea.
- Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them. Fireworks are illegal in my state, so why wasn’t this #1? Or the only one?
- Always have water handy. (A hose or bucket.) How big should the bucket be?
- Never point or shoot fireworks at another person. Are there any exceptions?
- Use common sense. Why doesn’t this fall under the previous guideline?
- Do not try to re-ignite a “dud” as it could explode near your hands or face. Only the duds can take off your limbs.
- Only light one at a time. What about the finale?
- Do not try to make your own fireworks. Challenge Accepted.
