I think a lot of these guys were at Nortel in yhe 80's....

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

Understanding Engineers - Take Two
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is
empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Understanding Engineers - Take Three
A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a
Particularly slow group of golfers.
The 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
The priest said, "Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with
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
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
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 engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

Understanding Engineers - Take Four
What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil
Mechanical engineers build weapons and civil engineers build targets

Understanding 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?"

Understanding Engineers - Take Six
Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the
designers of the human body. One said, "It was a mechanical engineer.
look at all the joints." Another said, "No, it was an electrical
The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections." The
one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else
run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"

Understanding Engineers - Take Seven
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers
believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
