OT- Joke

I know this is off topic, but since I'm a consultant/engineer and own a Jeep I liked it. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

A shepherd was herding his flocks in a remote pasture when suddenly a

> > and a YSL tie leaned out of the window and asked the shepherd: "If I

> > one?"
> >
> > The shepherd looks at the yuppie, then at his peacefully grazing
> > flock and calmly answers "sure!" The yuppie parks the car, whips out
> > his notebook, connects it to a cell-phone, surfs to a NASA page on the

Re: OT- Joke

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] There is no word in the English language that is more over rated than "consultant". I just LOVE it when a tiny school district pays some consultant 60K to tell THEM what they knew already but were afraid to vocalize. The best part of being a consultant is the pay scale.....you just think up a number[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].

Re: OT- Joke

Well unfortunately I don't have that problem (endless payscale) and can't afford the Cherokee, and Gucci (not that I would own Gucci even if I could afford it). An endless payscale would be nice to help build my rig, but no such luck [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img].
