Morning Scene - Electrical Housing Thing

This electrical housing thingie is on the corner of Wabash and Lake St.

Normally, one doesn’t notice these things, but this guy I used to be friends with is a project engineer and designs them. Really. That’s all he does.

He flies all over the U.S. and Canada where these things are made, meeting with manufacturers, tweaking the designs, etc. We’d be driving along and he’d point to one of these somewhere, get all excited and say, “Now, why would they use a Model XK47B at that location?” and I’m thinking, “Geez, dude, you really need a more exciting job.”

I shouldn’t berate one’s profession. Thank god there are people like my friend, Dan, who are willing to make things we need but nobody thinks about.

Ain't it the truth? :)

There are a lot of jobs like that and it's good that there are people who do them and it's even better when, like your friend, they are actually passionate about it.

Although I sense that his passions made you yawn, hence the former friend status. It happens.
