Head Scratcher

Post by jem » Tue Jul 10, 2012 8:42 pm

I've been going to the same place to get my plans printed off for 6 years. The guy that was at the checkout tonight has been there about 4 of those years. He knows me and my business by name.

Today he asks: "lot of people building your airplanes?" I looked at him. Blinked a few times. And said "I design boats, not planes."

He says: "Oh yea I guess that would make sense since it's JEM Watercraft."

I just smiled, nodded, and walked away.

WOW! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I was a photocopier serviceman with Xerox for many years. Now you know what I had to put up with :)

Reading this still makes me chuckle this early morning.

He's a good guy and we've had good conversations over the past few years. I guess that factoid just kinda slipped past the ole "mental net". :lol:

He has never built one of your boats and he thinks they fly. My guess is the reputation for your fast boats is even recognized by him. :D
