Being an engineer is not the most exciting job in the world. My answer to the “what do you do for work” question, usually evokes the following response: “Oh well, isn’t that…interesting.” ::crickets chirping::
Actually, it is interesting, but I can only ever talk about work with people I work with. Other people wouldn’t have a clue what the heck I’m talking about or they would roll their eyes and think to themselves, “oh my god, she’s such a nerd.”
But sometimes engineering can unintentionally funny. For example, while waiting to be patched through to a customer, the hold recording said:
“Need a good quality lubricant?”
Um…no thank you. But thanks for the giggle.
