I spent a large portion of this morning in a very important business meeting with our biggest customer. Here's a pop quiz.
Which of the following double meaning statements was stressed repeatedly by the customer's representative, within a 5 minute period, that made it difficult for me to keep from laughing?

1) I need a stiff member...
2) You have to spread the legs open wide...
3) ...he reached into a wet box.
4) This box will take a massive load.
This is actually a trick question. The answer is ALL the above! Needless to say, I had to excuse myself from this meeting. Contrary to what you may now beleive, I do not work in the porn industry. The meeting was actually about an electrical cabinet, or box, that needed a cross beam, or stiff member, to keep the linemen from having to spread the (support) legs apart" to prevent water leakage that would make it a wet box thereby causing problems with the busbars that carry a large amount of current, or load. Really!
So now go here and "read some blogs", if you know what I mean. (wink-wink)
