Hey contractors, better hope your technicians are not dancing to background music while fixing a unit. There might be an accident that will end up costing your business.

You might not ever get rich
But let me tell ya it's better that diggin' a ditch.
There ain't no tellin' who ya might meet. .
A movie star or may be even an Indian Chief.


According to the Associated Press, that is what happened to a dentist in Syracuse, N.Y., who was dancing while doing his job. Dr. George Trusty has been sued for $600,000 for allegedly dancing to a song on the radio while drilling a woman’s tooth. The patient had to go the hospital after the drill snapped off and lodged near her eye.

(Workin' at the) car wash.
Workin' at the car wash yeah !
Come on and sing it with me car wash.
Get with the feelin' y'all car wash yeah.

The song that was on the radio was not by Elvis, Michael Jackson, or The Black Crowes. Instead it was the song Car Wash by Rose Royce. For the rest of the story, click here: http://www.ajc.com/news/content/news/stories/2007/11/02/DancingDentist_1102.html

I hope you have that song stuck in your head for the entire day… much like I did.
