Translations in Engineering

Being an engineer is a unique experience. Non-engineers tend not to understand. Here is a prime example of the interaction between engineers…

The scene takes place at a Mexican restaurant.

EE – Hey, there’s ME… He ditched us for lunch and we both ended up at the same place.

AE – Yeah…

EE – Let’s send ME a margarita…

AE – That would be hilarious.


AE – Actually, that would be funny, but margaritas are like nine bucks. Sending ME a margarita would be funny, but probably more like two bucks funny.
EE – I agree. I was thinking one buck each is all the joke was worth.
