Allow me to translate

In my previous career I worked as a warehouseman / purchasing agent for a mining company. One of my duties was taking stock of consumables in the "shop" which included welding supplies like oxygen and accetaline. The welders would store the full tanks in one area, and the empties in another. On occasion I'd find tanks that were marked "M.T." (empty), since this was well before instant messaging, I have to assume that the welder who marked the tanks was either a bit of a joker or a little illiterate. Never the less, I think I know what happened to this guy...

He now works for the department of highways in Nunatsiavut! Thanks Jan!
