An engineering student is walking along when a fellow student arrives on a new bicycle. Impressed, he asks, "Where did you get that beautiful bicycle?"

"Well," the second engineering student says, "A couple of days ago I was just walking along when this georgeous blonde pulls up, hops off the bike, rips off all her clothes, and says 'take what you want'."

The other engineering student nods and says "Good choice. The clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

The glues WERE different colors. "an automated spectrascope" is a fancy phrase that describes a machine that measures colors.

How can you tell if you are speaking to an EXTROVERTED engineer?





He looks at YOUR shoes when he talks...



Can't spell geek without EE

There's a reason for that. 99.97% of the time the computer user either has no clue or will purposely try to mislead you when asked 'what did you try to install just before it failed'. The desktop techs call if PEBCAK. Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard.

I'm wasn't a deskside support tech but I have a CLASSIC true story for you: I got a panicked call from buyer that the database had crashed and it caused her computer to do weird things. I knew the database was fine but I ran down 5 flights of stairs to her office. The problem? She had a BIG FREAKIN' FAN next to her CRT monitor and the magnetic field from it was making the image distort. I turned the fan off and said 'there, I fixed it'. Before I could escape her office she turned the fan back on and said 'SEE, it's broken again!'. Hard to keep a straight face in such situations.

The way I look at it is: we are all people of color - some more than others. We are all mentally retarded - some more than others. We are all mentally ill - some more than others, etc.
Same here, I worked for WA state for 30 years. We had some really good engineers and some really bad ones. The good ones got jobs in private industry and the bad ones got promoted!

When I set up and managed a three person help desk for Nike's major packaging supplier we called it a problem with the "chair/keyboard interface"

Had a friend whose son worked as a tech at one of the big box electronics stores,
when someone brought in a computer that they screwed up,
the repair code on it was TDO............ Too Dumb to Operate.

Our favorite is to say we had an I D 10 T error.

I worked for an auto parts retailer for several years, first as a salesman and ended up in management. When customers brought back parts, and it was obvious that they had broken them while trying to install them (happens more than you think), we used the code CTSTI. Customer to Stupid to Install.

The Mechanical Engineering graduate asks, How does it work?
The Production Engineering graduate asks, How will it me made?
The Accounting gratuate asks, how much will it cost?
The Business Major asks, How many can we sell?
The liberal Arts graduate asks, Do you want fries with that?

What do Engineers use for birth control?
Their personalities.. I can say that because I am one.

Mechanical Engineers make weapons. Architects make targets.

My daughter was working in tech assistance for a computer company in the 90's. She kept count of the people who called because their keyboard lacked an "any" key -- as in "Press any key to begin".
