Spouses vs. Field Engineers

Document Actions
Field engineers and their spouses often disagree. Here are a few examples.

YOU CAN'T PICK YOUR INLAWS

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.

As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the field engineer asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"

"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

HAVING WORDS

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000.

The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

CREATION

A field engineer said to his spouse one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time."

The spouse responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE

A field engineer and his spouse were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.

The spouse said, "You should do it, because you get up first and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."

The field engineer said, "You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." The spouse replied, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."

The engineer replied, "I don't believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"

GIVING THE SILENT TREATMENT

A field engineer and spouse were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the engineer realized that the next day, he would to awaken at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), the engineer wrote on a piece of paper,

"Please wake me at 5:00 AM" leaving the note where it was sure to be found.

The next morning, the engineer awoke only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, the engineer was about to go and see why the spouse hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up." Engineers are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

FINAL WORDS

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a “rough draft” before the masterpiece.
