Seems like more work doing it that way rather than doing it right since he has to pick up all the boxes anyway...

So I watched the guy throw the boxes at the ramp for ages then scrubbed to the end and saw him and another guy picking up the ones which had fallen on the ground.

I am mildly disturbed that he would do that, he is making the job harder and longer for himself. Maybe he gets paid by the hour?

Or maybe he wanted the other guy to help him initially, so he did it on purpose just to annoy the other guy?
