Had a job at a box shop once. Told them flat out, “I’m NOT a forklift operator.” They said, “it’ll be fine.” It definitely was NOT fine as I knocked over stacks of boxes all the time. Any idiot can learn but there are some truly insane forklift operators working at high capacity facilities. They dont just manage to move a pallet eventually, they race thru the warehouse and get in the right spot at the right angle at full speed. I’d watch competition fork lifting.

He was insane on that thing! He’d move it around so fast and just insta-grab anything you could point at. Shit was next level. I can drive and use a forklift, but this dude would make me look like a total idiot on the thing. Official Proud Forklift Operator T-Shirt Mine was 4hrs. About an hour to read a booklet and take a test, and hour for everyone to drive around in a forklift for a bit, and like 2 hrs of watching funny forklift fails. It’s easy to learn how to operate a forklift, but with a lot of time put in there is a level of mastery. Not saying I’ve mastered it, but I’ve worked with some insanely skilled mobile equipment operators and it’s a hell of a thing to behold.
