However, I have watched one of my friends walk into an exhaust. She just had a dumb moment and walked right into it. AFTER we made sure that she was okay we all (her included) had a good laugh about it.
And for karma in action Friday I was nearly blown over by exhaust. A pilot pulled into the wrong spot. I was working in the next spot (with my back to him) when I saw my supervisor pointing and screaming something. I stared at him thinking that he had finally cracked, turned around and ducked when I saw the exhaust turning right at me. I ended up doing a little half roll and ended up on my back. Again no one was hurt so it was rather funny.
