From the Minds of Engineers

Today I received a big envelope from my office in the mail. I couldn't figure out what they would be sending me. Turned out to be a get well card....civil engineering style. I work for New York State Dept. of Transportation. I work in the Regional office in the Bridge Inspection and Inventory Unit with a bunch of engineers. So this is what they sent me.....I LOVE IT!!!!
Gotta love these guys,( and gals).
Info behind the comment in the photo below: When a bridge gets inspected, sometimes the inspectors find issues with the bridge that need to be repaired. When that happens, it gets flagged. Then the paperwork starts and the owner of the bridge is responsible for repairing what casued the inspector to issue the flag. An engineer with a professional engineer's license is required to inspect the repair and certify that it is acceptable. Engineers..... what a crazy bunch!Another comment from a friend.
Of course when my husband saw this card, he said the gang at work knew they couldn't get away with sending me a store bought card.
My next Dr. appointment is Monday and if all goes well, I'll be back to work later next week. Hopefully things at work aren't in too bad of shape. I don't know though, a lot can happen when you leave a bunch of engineers to fend for themselves.
