A conversation today with WoBG.  We were watching a movie dated in the 70s.  There was a black dial wall phone in the kitchen.

BG:  Did you see that phone?

WoBG:  Yes.  We didn't have one like that, did you?

BG: Yes we did.

WoBG:  Where was it?

BG:  On the wall.

I think my son was getting back at me for something that I said at a race in Alabama. We were sitting around with a bunch of other racers enjoy a evening drink and my son was telling a story of his early days of racing and it started with......when I was young and stupid and I said ......now you're just stupid and everyone laughed.

Here a list of parts can you order them and have them sent to my house. 

Even I would have ordered the parts.   

I've learned to be more 'human' over the years.

You think a senior engineer would be very literal.       Fixed it.

Yeah... I can be VERY literal about things.  Spock was/is the character that I would have been in Star Trek.

One movie quote about assumption I love, was in Under Siege 2.

When you work on machines for 30+ years you get to know what the machine can and cannot do. When a engineer who doesn't even knows what a combination wrench is tells you to make this and I tell him that the machine can't make that they don't believe me. Or when the engineer asks me.....how long will it take to switch the machine over to run xxxxx product and my response is 2 to 3 days they say  that just a number you made up.

I would point at my toolbox and tell them to show me how to do it faster.
