I think if the Germans only had to have one guy to fuel a plane, they might have done better. http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/970/l1jn5.jpg

Ah, so that's where the Highway Department learned their method.

Amusing! I'm reminded that it's against the law to pump your own gas in New Jersey and Oregon. All filling stations in these states are manned by pump jockies- a job that's long since gone the way of ice & milk delivery elsewhere in the USA.

When I get in an argument with a friend from either of these places, I like to remind them that they are, by law, too stupid to pump their own gas. It rarely fails to set them off. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The guy on the left is filling in the gas jockey apprenticeship papers no doubt.

Actually that is non-union labor. If it were Union labor it would take only one guy because he would get it right the first time!

Warum muss man es einfach machen wenn man es auch schwierig durchfuehren kann?

I believe that you've all simply overlooked or forgotten some details. As a former union brother, United Steel Workers of America Local 3269, I'd like to point out that Germany was in dire straights towards the end; therefore, they brought in scab workers trying to bust the Flueger Flying Workers. It seems that good old Adolph was a union buster... While trying to save a buck, he fired good union workers, and employed these unskilled scabs. The problem is that it takes so many scabs to do the job, and as somebody already pointed out, scabs must frequently do the same job over and over again until it's done right.

Now in this photo, the union worker, man on far left, is filing a grievance for wages lost... You know that the man on the left is the union worker because he's the only one with proper safety shoes on. The scabs, well...
