Remember when Nissan sent 200 engineers from Japan to their Mississippi auto plant to see what was causing their poor quality ratings? Well it turns out one of the problems happened to be the jewelry the assembly workers were wearing. Watches, necklaces etc. actually dragged through car paint and left scratches and more on the new cars on the line. Workers have been told to remove all jewelry and anything metal before going to work. The only employee who quit over the new rules was a Vietnam veteran named BA Baracus, pictured here. For some reason he stormed off the assembly line mumbling " I pity these fools," and hasn't been seen since.
