hey quality,

my dad's good buddy (our family friend for life) would always say that to me, teasing. as he helped me and my friends build my pole building last summer.
is that a famous quote from someone?

as he held the trusses in place and we nailed them to the walls, he also would tease my "electrical engineer friend" by telling him he might as well cut the bottom half of that hammer handle off!! because you never use it!!!

took us 4 hours to set 28 trusses!!!!!
but we did it!!! (you have to admit, enginerds are autonomous)

but we're such geeks......

I'm an alcohol engineer I carefully reprocess booze into a buzz and then dissolve it into a hangover.

I knew there was a reason I quit engineering in college. Now I'm a computer nerd. I'm not sure which is worse

Rambunctious,

Don't know if it's a famous quote or not. Heard it enough at MTU.

OH boy does he!!!!!! You people have no idea how much Rambunctious resembles ALL those remarks!!!! He engineers EVERYTHING. Analyzes EVERYTHING.

Recently I had a full gas can slide out of the open tailgate of my truck (right after I asked him if we closed it!). There was snow on the ground, so the can slid a few yards on it's bottom!! Landed right side up! I look back and said "what are the odds it would land right side up??" To which Rob replies "1 in 7." I laughed for hours. He expaines that if it were a die, it would have had a 1 in 7 chance of landing on any side. Duh!!!! I still laugh at him for that one. All I have to do is look at him and say "one in seven" and we both laugh.

Finally, some good jokes for my husband. Maybe he'll stop picking on me with all those accountant jokes.
