I remember they had us on the old Fisher body, uh, they had a conveyor there were you finished the seatbacks, what they called the back of the car. And it was hot in there and I got sick and told my foreman, I says, God, I says I'm sick, my shoes are full of sweat then, you know they're just soaking wet and I quit sweating

I said boy, I said Jack I'm sick, I've got to get someplace where I can get some air. Oh, he says, get back up there and work up a sweat you'll be all right and I was back up on the line again and hell I fell right on my face see, and that scared em because I was in pretty bad shape, so they finally got me squared away.
