To all Software Engineer's... a Funny Post

Guy's & Gal's
im just posting a email that i recevied that i thought it was good to share

DEDICATED To All Software Engineer's

One day, a Mechanical Engineer, an Electrical Engineer, a Chemical Engineer
and a Software Engineer were driving down the street in the same car.


The car broke down.

The Mechanical Engineer said, "I think a rod broke. We can check the
rods."

The Chemical Engineer said, "The way it sputtered at the end, I don't
think it's getting gas. We shall check the gas tank."


The Electrical Engineer said, "I think there was a spark and something
is wrong with the electrical system. We shall check the circuitry."

All three turned to the Software engineer and said, "What do you think?"

The Software Engineer said, "We shall get out of the car and get in
Again."

Or disconnect and reconnect the battery, in hopes to reset the ECM.

I have heard a different version that roughly goes.

One day, a Mechanical Engineer, an Electrical Engineer, and a Software Engineer were driving down the street in the same car.

All of a sudden something breaks and they crash down a hill. They all get out and try to figure out what went wrong.

The Mechanical Engineer said, "I think the steering rack broke and we lost control."

The Electrical Engineer said, "I think there was short circuit in the ECU."

They turned to the Software engineer and said, "What do you think?"

The Software Engineer said, "Well lets push it back up the hill and run it again. "

Yea I would think it would me more in lines of, "We shall pull latch on door, swing door open, step out, stand, if you are an electrician proceed to the battery, if you are a mechanical engineer proceed to the engine, if you are a chemical engineer proceed to the gas tank...."

Or something dorky like that

Here's a better one:

One day, a Marketing guy, a Sales guy, and Human Resources guy were driving down a deserted street in the same car.

All of a sudden something breaks and they crash down a hill. They all get out and try to figure out what went wrong.

The Marketing guy said, "I haven't gotta clue."

The Sales guy said, "I haven't gotta clue either."

They turned to the HR guy...

The HR guy said, "Well dont look at me."

THEN, they all died.
