"John Welder" gets something in his eyes while welding. He reports the incident immediately to his employer. There was no wash station, so the employer tells the welder to rinse his eyes with a bottle of water. When that does not solve the problem, John Welder says that he needs to see the doctor due to the ongoing pain. The welder's supervisor then yells at him, "damn it John, we better find that there is something in your eyes."
