Understanding Field Engineers
Understanding Field Engineers - Take One
Two engineering students were walking across a university campus when one said, “Wow! Where did you get such a great bike?”
The second engineer replied, “Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, “Take what you want.”
The second engineer nodded approvingly and said, “Good choice! the clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway.”

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the field engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.
The field engineer fumed, "What's with those blokes? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"
The doctor chimed in, “I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golfers!”
The priest said, “Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with him. He said, “Hello, George! What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?”
The greens keeper replied, “Oh, yes. That's a group of blind fire fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime.”
The group fell silent for a moment.
The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight.”
The doctor said, “Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do for them."
The field engineer said, “Why can't they play at night?”

What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers? Mechanical engineers build weapons. Civil engineers build the targets.
Understanding Field Engineers - Take Five
The graduate with a science degree asks, “Why does it work?”
The graduate with an engineering degree asks, “How does it work?”
The graduate with an accounting degree asks, “How much will it cost?”
The graduate with an arts degree asks, “Do you want fries with that burger?”

Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the possible designers of the female human body.
One observed, “It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints.”
Another said, “No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections.”
The last one concluded, “No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?”

Normal people believe that if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broken, it doesn't have enough features yet.

A field engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, “If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week.” The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.
The frog then cried out, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a Princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want.”
Again, the field engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frustrated frog asked, “What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?”
The field engineer said, “Look, I'm a field engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool!”
