Mind Your Head part 2
Yellow = Oh my, you love the spotlight
Blue = You like to dance to the beat of your own drum
The Good Guy
White = You see yourself as the good guy
The Elusive One
Orange = The elusive and shy one
I have been asked to change the title of my previous article, "What the colour of your helmet says about you.", apparently, the title was misleading and some people got the wrong idea about the actual topic of the post. I thought it best to set the record straight. Should you wish to read it first here is the link...Read It Here!
The following article is in no way endorsed by Primo plc or FML Insurance and is entirely my own opinion and thoughts. I accept all responsibility for this post and therefore accept the consequences of my actions. I should also warn you should you decide to read on and you are extremely squeamish or suffer from chromophobia this could get a little uncomfortable and you may want to reconsider.
Set the Record Straight (Not Serious)
As I mentioned, my previous article heading was a bit misleading so, I thought it only fair to that those who felt their time had been wasted reading the last article that I should write one for you too and hopefully not get fired in the process. Here goes...
What the colour of your helmet says about you?
White = You see yourself as the good guy, and you want other people to see you that way too. Those that wear white helmets need not worry about what others (yellow, blue and brown helmets) think of them so much.
Brown = It's surprising just how warm you are in fact many would say you're just hot, hot, hot. Your favourite lip balm is made from Chilli oil and others believe you drink Tabasco sauce instead of tea to stay refreshed. You can cut through the steeliest of stairs (sorry, couldn't resist) and melt the coldest of hearts.
Green = Anyone who chooses a green helmet is a worrier. The brighter the green the more they worry. If you lean toward darker green you are probably new at this and that's ok you'll be fine, do you see that person over there with the bright green helmet? It's their job to keep everyone safe so they'll be watching out for you every step of the way.
Yellow = Oh my, you love the spotlight and yes, you may be the most common colour seen on a construction site but without you, nothing would be built. Those that have been wearing the yellow helm for some time are known for their strong grip, strong tea and the ability to whistle "Right Said Fred" non-stop for 8 hours. They are, however, the most likely to flash their XXX XXXXXX winning smiles.
Blue = You like to dance to the beat of your own drum, probably electronic. You've not yet been caught shaving in someone else's bathroom but, with the recent amount of calls about leaks at four in the morning, it's only a matter of time.
Orange = I was unable to write this one up as I couldn't find anyone to base my orange helmet theories on. Orange helmets seem to be very elusive, I have driven the length and breadth of this country searching for traffic cones (a sure-fire sign that there is a road crew around) but alas whilst there has been no shortage of cones and traffic works the helmet wearers have evaded us time and time again. How do they do it? Where do they hide? We know the work gets done, but sightings of these obviously shy workers are far and few between.
Grey = Confused, you spent an hour this morning polishing your shoes to a high shine only to turn up at work and be informed you'll be visiting a construction site today. You have been asked to pay a visit and see if there is a reason the project is a little behind, however everywhere you go everyone has their heads down and are working really hard, you find it a little strange that only white helmets seem to want to make eye contact. You leave and recommend your boss pay for more temporary staff to get things back on track, you are also now finding it hard to sleep at night, that site has left you feeling really uneasy, plus your shoes are scuffed.
Pink = You don't care about rules and are the most likely person to cause an accident, probably not just to yourself, though. You are the sort of person that would accidentally shoot a nail from a nail gun through their hand and then joke about being the "Messiah" in a poor attempt to save face. In the words of Monty Python, "He's not the Messiah, he's just a naughty boy."
Well, this was all written in good fun, please excuse the grammatical errors it's the wee hours. I hope this has gone some way toward winning my loyal readers back and giving them what they wanted from the article (Couldn't bear losing two readers as the last one might get lonely).
I do hope you enjoyed it
