The Anonymous Widower

Am I Pedantic?

There is an old joke about surgeons operating on electrical engineers, saying they like doing it as everything is colour-coded. I did find a version of the joke here.

Five surgeons were taking a coffee break and were discussing their work.

The first said, “I think accountants are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is numbered.”

The second said, “I think librarians are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is in alphabetical order.”

The third said, “I like to operate on electricians. You open them up and everything inside is color-coded.”

The fourth one said, “I like to operate on lawyers. They’re heartless, spineless and gutless.”

The fifth surgeon says “I like engineers . They always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end.”  

I sometimes can be very disorganised, but I’m also very pedantic. This morning, after sorting my washing, I had two socks left over; one blue and one red.

Two Odd Socks

Two Odd Socks

I’d obviously put one red and one blue together whilst sorting them out.

I must be one of the only people I know, who would sort through the sock balls to find the other odd pair.

Luckily, they were only the third pair I checked.

So now I can sleep soundly, knowing that I don’t have two pairs of odd socks in the drawer.
