Hi everyone and welcome back to a few more smiles and chuckles to begin your week. Feel free to enjoy them!
On a visit to Boston, I noticed a parking meter with a paper sack over it upon which was written: “Broken.”
A skeptical parking officer removed the bag, inserted a quarter in the meter and turned the dial. It worked perfectly. As the officer began to write a parking ticket, the car’s owner rushed out of a nearby building.
“What are you doing?” he yelled after a quick glance at the meter. “There’s plenty of time left!”
Losing weight doesn’t seem to be working for me, so from now I’m going to concentrate on getting taller.
WHAT AN ENGINEER SAYS (AND WHAT IT MEANS)
A number of different approaches are being tried. (We are still grasping at straws.)
We’re working on a fresh approach to the problem. (We just hired three kids fresh out of college.)
Major technological breakthrough. (It works OK, but looks very hi-tech.)
Customer satisfaction upon delivery is assured. (We are so far behind schedule the customer is happy to get it delivered.)
Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive. (The thing blew up when we threw the switch.)
Test results were extremely gratifying. (We are so surprised that the thing works.)
The entire concept will have to be abandoned. (The only person who understood the thing quit.)
It is in process. (It is so wrapped up in red tape that the situation is about hopeless.)
We’ll look into it. (Forget it! We have enough problems for now.)
Give us the benefit of your thoughts. (We’ll listen to what you have to say as long as it doesn’t interfere with what we’ve already done.)
Give us your interpretation. (I can’t wait to hear this!)
Low maintenance. (Impossible to fix if broken.)
Your secret’s safe with me. I wasn’t even listening.
Describe yourself in three words: 1. Lazy
Have a great day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
