A Day In The Life of A Coworker

A day in the life of my Coworker Austin Burton. We work for Forsyth County Parks and Recreation. We provide maintenance work for the park in order to keep it running. We are the grounds keepers also. Without us to maintain the park it would turn into filth. We mow the grass, take care of the turf fields, fix equipment, clean the bathrooms, and take equipment we can’t fix to the shop. Just remember, next time you go to the park and want to destroy it, someone works hard to keep it nice for you.

Austin’s day starts off with warming up the work truck especially when we have these low temperature days. He is posing in this not for my picture but for our new staff introduction photo.
Here our boss is seen directing another coworker where to back up to hook up to the trailer. This is a crucial part in safely hooking up to a trailer.
After getting the trailer hooked up, our boss briefed us on the days work we had. He’s not always around so interacting with him is always fun.
Austin is seen here cleaning a mirror in one of our bathrooms. We were assigned this area of the park by our boss.
We are very sanitary here as we don’t know what has touched stuff in these bathrooms. COVID has also increased our sanitation.
Here Austin is hooking up a plug for our turf field brush. This allows him to raise and lower the brush when working.
Austin is using the turf field brush here. This takes the turf that is pushed down and fluffs it up.
After brushing the field, He has to clean up the debris the brush gathered on the field.
On our way back to the shop for the end of the day, A coworker called for us to come check out a water leak. Leaks like this are not something we can fix so we have to contract them out.
At the end of the day we have to put away all of our tools and equipment. Austin and fellow coworker Johnny Tatum are seen doing so. This is the end of the day for us.
