All That Hard Work



I never talk about Juice’s job (ever, ever) but he shared a story with me today that I just had to share with you!  He gave me permission (after his final okay after writing) to post it.

A co-worker called him to help him solve a problem.  (Juice is an engineer, for those who are wondering/new here.)  So Juice gathers up all his equipment he needs to fix the problem and goes to the co-worker in the lab.  There are 3 other people standing around, waiting for him to show up and help out.

They show him the problem, and he confirms that the equipment is not working.  He then walks to the back of the equipment, pushes the cord all the way into the socket and fixes the problem.

All that hard work, years of schooling and thousands of dollars so he can plug equipment in right.

I bring Fire for your majesty

What a great job.  :)


PS- I find it hilarious that it took FOUR engineers to fix this problem.

    Ohhh! Ohh! Be sure to let us know how many engineers it takes to change a light bulb when that story comes out too!! Now the real question is what does his shirt say in the fire picture?

      On his shirt it says, “Performing algorithmic acts of kindness” which is some kind of math/engineering joke that I still don’t quite understand.

    My vacuum works, too, when I plug it in. I still have to push it around.

    I just knew there was a lightbulb joke in there somewhere.
    <—not surprised that Juice was the one to figure it out.
