You must be an "operating" engineer, like all the illiterate goobers I work with.

Speaking of engineers, at least operating engineers, I could tell you some of the **** I have seen. Just makes me shake my head. One guy I work with puts teflon tape on every fitting. JIC? **** it. Teflon tape. O ring boss? **** ya! Teflon that bitch! Pipe union? Why not?

I came in one day and there was a water leak above one of our presses. Got the manlift to take a look. Get up there and someone had wrapped a copper line with electrical tape and used a hose clamp to secure it. **** ya!

Then there's this. (since corrected by me).

You do realize "operating engineers" is the name of a union, that requires no education to be a member of and an actual engineer is a highly education professional right?

Supposedly teaches 'logic' at a college.


No wonder kids of today have so many problems.

Mine was a positive story. It was the opposite of 'stupid people think they're smart'. This was an obviously intelligent person who knew how much he didn't know.
