Man that right there is the funniest thing I read today.

Don't ask how I know but cheap hotels don't. I was told so they don't worry about the pool as much.

I am an Engineer to the bone and have no filter. I call them as I see them(many times when I shouldn't). I have made enemies of insecure and dishonest people and good friends of self confident and honest people. In the current politically correct climate saying what you think is no longer acceptable. Actually, thinking is discouraged too. I have gotten into trouble at work many times since the WWII generation retired. I am now retired and glad to get away from it all.

 

The initial story in this thread is hilarious and the guy had the retort coming to him. Turn off the lights was also a great retort. 30 years ago I was a Navy civilian. We had a Xerox that could reduce copies. A young woman that I didn't know was looking at the machine. She then turned to me and asked " how do you reduce?" Without thinking I replied "diet and excercise". She had a stunned look on her face (as I laughed).

 

We can laugh about this but you guys that are still working please be carefull. Good Luck, Rick

I couldn't agree more.  Luckily I work in the coal mining industry and it is full of people who are men.  The boys get weeded out real quick as they can't take the work, nor the social environment.  We can get away with saying just about anything.  If I had to change career fields I would be either slapped with sexual harassment or fired for language

That is funny, not necessarily nice, but funny. My 14 yr old daughter has no filter, usually though it comes out of her mouth as drama.

I tell everyone I speak in sarcasim so if ya can't handle it, don't talk to me :D

Sometimes not having a filter can get you in trouble. Back when I was Group leader on the paint Line(30+ yrs ago) we were hanging small parts on racks so the painter could paint them.

Plant Manager spent 4 hrs in  the department showing us how to get more parts on the rack.

  W/o proper spacing the parts could not be painted and the painter was taking all the extras off and throwing them in a corner of the paint booth.

  I had finally had enough and told the plant manager to "get out of my department, I have forgot more than he would ever know". He left, but I never got another promotion on that job?

 

After all these years I am finally starting to learn sometimes what you don't say is  more important than what you do.

Using a payloader to run a pickup over will not send you spiraling up the company ladder, either.

Just a little more for the filter - the original post mentioned about body functions , but washing hands ?   One goes with the other in restaurants  .

 

 

           And the bubbly is the type for drinking   :rolling:    :thumbs:
