During manual handling training a strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could out do anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of the site safety team.
After several minutes, the manual handling instructor had had enough.
''Why don't you put your money where your mouth is,'' he said. "I will bet a week's wages that I can move something in a wheelbarrow over to that site hut that you won't be able to wheel back.''
''You're on, old man,'' the braggart replied. ''Let's see what you got.''
The manual handling instructor reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, ''All right. Get in.''
