Ya, I'm sorry that all of those Ford execs kept giving you funny looks at the Ford Ranger debut. I just told them that it was a hazing ritual. I would have paid money to watch @bobbywalter walk around the show wearing one while he was talking to the engineers.
That would have been beyond priceless...

Especially if we could get him to skip instead of walk.

That would have been epic.

I would have loved to have been there to talk to those guys, but I would have pretty quickly gotten thrown out and had my Ford credentials revoked for questioning things like their intelligence, spirituality, parentage, choice of romantic partners, alpha-wave function.

So far my personal favorite epithet for those guys that I have come up with is "Godless pig-f**king bastard engineer".

My brother won a trip (some tech challenge thing) to go out to Detroit the fall before I did and got to tour a bunch of ford places. His group was asked to leave the hotline place... he said

Had me at unlimited unpaid overtime!

While I'm not applying for the job, it sounds like y'all lost your plane in Vegas & need a new pole. It's high time I shoot for that donor badge anyways. Come get the one out of my grandma's place and its yours!

Probably wouldn't last .05 seconds in a room with Ford engies either. It'd be between "Why the hell did you guys put a bolt there?" and "You put *that* on your Ranger??"

Idk how the conversations would go if we all each had 5 unfiltered minutes with Ford engineering.
