I guess it pays to be forklift certified for some people, huh?

Or at least a guy named Chris who you’re about to meet wishes he’d been certified…because he shared a TikTok video that showed him having to manually load 170 bricks onto a cart because he’s not actually allowed to operate the machine at the Lowe’s store he works at.

The caption to Chris’ video reads, “Just another day in the workforce.”

Chris’ text overlay on the video says, “When someone orders 170 bricks and ur not forklift certified.”


Chris took a break during the video after he got a call that someone needed some mulch so he left his cart to attend to another customer.

Chris returned from helping with the mulch and discovered that the man who ordered the bricks thought he was done and started to push the cart away.

Chris told him they needed to add more bricks so the customer ended up helping him out with the rest of the job.

Teamwork makes the dream work!
