@Crusty: I once had a great lady manager who said she hated me because I could visualise the materials and fabrication required to get her idea engineered into the real world.

That seems strange ... but managers are often strange...

@Crusty: "No she did not become Mrs Crusty."   I'm glad you put that in.  It's amazing how many stories like that DO end like that!

I thought about putting that in but didn't, as Max specified "EETimes related": captions.  Then again, a lot of engineers spend a lot of time in exactly that position, so I guess it IS topical.... :-)

@Max :  I take it you are recalling a management story from the past...

Your about right many managers can only think of the task to be undertaken and not what the fall back position needs to be, or the task that needs to follow the one they have embarked on.

I once had a great lady manager who said she hated me because I could visualise the materials and fabrication required to get her idea engineered into the real world.

I think that was only reason she hated me? Though she did mention that I am arrogant, self opionated, have a foul temper, until the first cup of tea has been taken  on arriving at work, after which I am sweetness and light and that I am always right.

No she did not become Mrs Crusty.

I think that if I were standing there, I would be saying "Please hand me my brown corduroy trousers!" :-)

"Hey dude, I get five bars up here. Gotta put this on facebook."

"Hey dude, no bars up here. Might as well jump."

@yrbndr: Kinda reminds me of what it felt like passing a kidney stone...

Is this a suggestion for a caption, or are you just reminiscing?

@Junko: "What you don't know won't hurt you"


They say "ignorence is bliss" ... so why aren't I happier? (LOL)

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
