You guys remember this, right?
The flowers arranged in positions two and four?
Well, here is the current version of that story.
A bunch of us from work went out to lunch.
1. My boss pulled over halfway to the restaurant to take a photo of the odometer as it turned 100,000. Which is fairly normal behavior. I challenge you to find a person who has not done that or some variation of that, for instance, taking a photo of 123,456 or 99,999.
2. He showed the photo to Other Engineer at the restaurant.
NB I really really like the people I work with. It is a joy to work with super smart people. There is no drama with engineers. But they are not like Ordinary People. At least, they are Not Like Me.
Other Engineer: You should have waited until 100,001.
Other Engineer: Because then it would have been symmetrical.
These guys crack me up.
