The guy who did a head and valve job on my motorhome accidently
stepped on my oil dip stick... put a kink in that sucker. wouldnt
work after that. its a long one 42 inches. Grreat valve job
though, engine runs like a fine clock now.
so I took the kinky dip stick to Kragen Auto supply, and was helped
a very brright confident and assured young man who said he had a
replacement 'right here'...and handed me a bubble packed chrome dip
stick about 14 inches long.....
ahhh sed... err. 'it looks a little short to me'. ..what is it a
telescoping dip stick... he assured me that it was, and would fit
still confident and somewhat patronizingly he said...'look, it will
work, take it out and try it, if it doesnt work bring it back and we
can exchange it'...he said with an air of competence and surity that
would have done anyone proud.
He will no doubt be at a jiffy lube next, stripping out oil drain
On other fronts, presented by another idiot.... Dr Dean Adel...but
this time maybe he was right.. Dr Dean reported on a study that
of heart patients could not locate or identify the human heart in a
diagram of the human body...
I thought that was exciting.... in all the world, only Mexico faired
so now of course we have these in management... reviewing our
resume's... well maybe yours.
I keep mine hidden.
When I get a resume request these days I tell them that I only submit
if the interviewer can explain what an
engineer in my business actually does... and explain to me why two
space shuttles blew up, killing over 20 good men and a couple of
that spares me limitless grief.
