QA Engineer Recalibrator

This would have been a good one for Wordless Wednesday...

My co-workers (developers) decided I needed a QA Engineer Recalibrator (i break things)... to beat them over the head (apparently, I can be tough on them sometimes, lol).

So,they got me this new tool:

Yep. That's a sledgehammer. ;-) Bet'cha that you've never gotten one of those at work!!



  1. I’m a firm believer that the best way to instill goodwill and holiday cheer into someone is by beating it into them, especially at work:

    “Are you OK, Ron?”
    “No I’m not OK, Tom! I’m up to my neck in paperwork and Susan is a complete idiot.”


    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, had a very shiny nose...
    “That’s the spirit, Ron!”

    Speaking of Christmas, I’ll never forget the story of Starky the elf. Have you ever heard of him? He was the Santa’s little helper who got thrown out of the North Pole for shooting caribou and placing Frosty’s magic hat on an anatomically correct snowman. That incident turned out to be a spectacle that is still talked about today in arctic circles. That Starky - who later had his name changed to Dirty Durrel - was an absolute mess when he was sober. Imagine the things he did when he was drunk.

    Well, that's all I've got to say for today. On a future comment I'll elaborate on the joys of dinning on fine venison during the Yultide season;0)

  2. I just bought myself a sledgehammer similar to that not too long ago. Apparently they are a really tool to use for ab workouts. Havent tried it yet as its been too hot but now that its cooled off, think I am heading outside to try it out.
