Three of us were sorting incoming material. The old man (me) a twenty year old man and a sixteen year old boy.
The teenager asked the twenty year old "What are you going to school for?"
The twenty year old said "I am trying to get into a plumber's apprentice program."
I commented, "Great choice. When an electrical outlet stops working people don't call an electrician, they get an extension cord. When the toilet stops flushing they are calling the plumber within thirty minutes."
The teenager said, in all seriousness, "Why don't they just go outside?"
I said, "There are places where that is discouraged."
The twenty year old had a hard time keeping a straight face.
