    Knowledge comes from taking things apart. Wisdom comes from putting them back together. And an increased vocabulary comes from re-assembling them wrong the third time.

    I do maintenance for a living and train new technicians.
    This is gold.

    Funny that most techs I have to train find the machines easy, but training these guys on computer or technology! Fugetaboutit!

    Make me bang my head against the wall.

    As most have probably heard or said when told by their dad's, or telling their kids.
    "Didn't I tell you not to" "Yea But"
    My dad would always reply there aint no "yeabutt." :)

    Two of my favorites , both from the same song:
    "Don't follow leaders , watch the parking meters"
    "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows".

    My Best Boss of my Life time of work, was in the Hard Wood Floors Business.

    He is literally Known in that craft, on the Entire West Coast.

    He once asked me if I knew the Difference, between a Craftsman, and a Master Craftsman.

    After my "No", he said Both make mistakes, but the Master Craftsman knows how to incorporate them so they are Never Seen.

    He gave ME the Specialty Wood Works, because he knew I was beyond being ~just a~ Craftsman, and he needed to groom someone to let him retire . . .

    Although I do not feel I earned that title, his trust in me was endless.

    I once did Sub Contracted work, in a 27 Million dollar Winery, which had missed being put in our master contract. I worked for a week, on a 7000 Square Foot Floor, that was Finished, except for mounting Bronze Floor plates to cover the Electrical Outlets . . .

    The Entire Project, from Consultation of Flooring Needs, to when I was Finished was 2.5 Years,

    I miss that old man: he is 93, and sharp as a tack. Patron Level NRA, John Birch Society, and Christian . . .
