Congrats.

I remember a manager where I worked driving the heavier of the two lifts onto the grass to move a picnic table. My 00 Silverado and some chains I keep in it pulled the burried lift out with a little coaxing. (Now...how'd I bend that dang driveshaft?)

I drove a forklift for a month. Didn't need any certification, though...

You go girl!!! I'm very proud for your accomplishment! I've never driven a fork lift but I sure wouldn't be afraid to try it if given the opportunity.

Yeah, its pretty simple here. At KMart they're like "you know how to drive a fork lift."

Me....uhh...no.

Them: "here take this test here and then go out there and get to work! You need to move this this and this."
