The Real Mess at Russian Super Mart

Posted on September 21, 2007 by


mess in Russian super mart 1

When the workers of this mart came in the morning they found the warehouse being in a big mess. As a short investigation has discovered that there was a crash in the night. A guy driving the electric loader crashed the shelves stand and five stores of good were ruined. He was not injured by a big luck and when he ran away from the falling stuff he even lost one of his snickers inside the car.

    what a surprise, typical russian idiocy and a complete lack of driving skills

  2. Hrothgaar says:

    didn’t you know that russians are not humans? They’re drunk apes!

    Well am I glad they took enough photos…

    Glad that no one was injured. What a mess. The rack equipment can be made more stable by connecting the back-to-back racks together. Racks that tall also need to have front horizontal supports installed all along the bottom locations. If material needs to be assessible by floor jacks, rack height should be reduced. Good employee Health and Safety practices saves lives and money.

      Do you work in a warehouse?

      • John from Kansas says:

        Yes. We had similar rack equipment. They do have rails on the ends tying sections together at the bottom, and there are shields around the legs, which is good. The damage was relatively isolated to a few sections which is also good. I have heard of an accident in another warehouse where they had single rows of racks. A fork lift driver somehow managed to knock down an entire row over into the next row. Six rows went down like dominos with the last row going through the wall. The driver was not hurt and no one else was in the area at the time.

        More than likely. He’s outlining standard storage rack construction for proper load bearing and safety.

        In an earthquake, this place will be a mess with total loss on a pretty high percentage of the goods.

    What makes you think it was in Russia???

  6. Jrr says:

    Normally russians wont throw away a thing.

    I snickered when you used the word “snicker” to describe the man’s “sneaker” (a.k.a. “tennis shoe”).

    • Wout says:

      Thanks for making that clear, I was already wondering what on earth his ‘snicker’ was :P

      • Swede says:

        Snickers is a chocolate candy bar. Maybe the police found his candy and took some DNA test to find which driver was responsible. Or maybe they found half of it still in his mouth ;)

  8. User says:

    Thank goodness the first rack collapsing didn’t cause the next one to fall starting a chain reaction and so on…

    I’m gonna think twice before going to costco next time

    I see a lot of Dutch brand names. Cup-a-soup, Libero, Kitekat, Whiskas, Evian… isn’t it Dutch supermarket ? Or is Holland the biggest supplier of Russian supermarkets ?

    The woman in 16.jpg, bring her to me. I have something for her.

  11. am says:

    why didnt they let the russians in? the place would have been cleaned in no time, remember what did they do with nuts?
    think of what would happen if it wasn’t for nuts, if it was for kitekat.

    • numb says:

      Great idea ;) The majority of the stuff is probably thrown away anyways, so why not let the average russians loot the area.

      But seriously, I wonder if the racks are installed properly on the ground and to eachothers, because I have worked with forklifts like the one found in the mess and they arent very powerful. So I guess the quilty person must have initiated some kind of a domino-effect, meaning that the rack must have had some fishy business before the collapse.

      • Swede says:

        As far as I can see the shelves are quite “top heavy” loaded. I don’t know how it is done in a warehouse but at home I try to stack heavy objects lower in my bookshelves.

        Those steel bars both bent and snapped right of as in the photos. Maybe it was overloaded?

  12. Henke says:

    Ooh, a BT truck.

  13. Mati says:

    So Estonia is not Russia!

    It’s in Estonian warehouse and nobody was not drunk. It was loader driver error in vorkhouers not in the night.

    Damn, that girl in black climbing the trash mountain is beautiful!
