Funny Engineers...

SWEET!!! Tonight is the last session of this class. Our last class comes next, which is essentially our final project. We won't be attending class except for January 27th when we present our final projects.

There are 21 chapters in the book, and for our homework we had to go back through and summarize each chapter. So what does the teacher plan for tonight, you may ask? Why, he is going to go through every chapter and summarize it. Again. Gee thanks, I was wanting you to reiterate and regurgitate not only what you've said, but what I've said as well.

Engineers are funny people, we just have a different sense of humor. I totally get this joke, as in it is the kind of joke I could see one engineer playing on another.

That is freaking HILARIOUS!!!!

This week my co-worker has been off to take care of his wife and new baby boy, so I've had more work to stay on top of. It's been fun and challenging, but I'll certainly be happy for him to be back! :-) He and his wife decided that if they were going to have a baby, they were going to do it right and get all the stages from newborn to the "terrible twos" out of the way before he even was born. He weighed in at 10 lbs, 13 oz and was 21 in long!!!

Since he has been gone, I've been trying to think of some practical joke to play on him when he gets back. I can't say yet if I have because he might read this, and that would totally ruin it, if there is anything. Unfortunately we don't have glass walls and big long formulas written out for me to change the "-" to a "+" in.

I should probably be nice to him because chances are he will be able to get me back even worse when we have our baby.

Speaking of funny engineers, someone on my floor posts quotes and jokes on his cube wall. It's great because his cube is right outside the break room so it gives us something to read while we heat up our leftovers. Here are a couple of gems.

"The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."

"It's only unethical if you get caught." (That was up when we were all taking our corporate ethics training...who says engineers don't have a sense of humor?)
