Some Engineering Humor…
This is a true story. Not even the names have been changed…
Mary (my wife) was at the beauty shop, getting her hair done. She couldn’t help hearing the conversation in the next chair. The discussion centered around the new boy friend of the customer’s niece. Here is a summary of the exchanges:
Hairdresser – “So, it sounds pretty serious with your niece and her young man at the university.”
Customer – “Yes, he seems really nice. The only problem is that he is studying engineering. You know, engineers can be kind of strange…”
Mary – (Interrupting) – “Tell me about it, I’m married to one!”
Customer – (Embarrassed) – “Oh, I didn’t mean…”
Mary – “Don’t worry, it’s true – they are different.” But then she added, “Its OK, though. We’ve been married over 40 years…”
I guess we engineers do have a reputation to uphold. Without us, there would be no Dilbert, right?
