My Favorite Sayings While Working in the Richmond Refinery

Acronyms for $500.

Are you asking me or are you telling me?

Bonus meeting?  Do we need a bonus meeting?

Do you Wiki?

Get over it.

If I wanted your opinion I would give it to you.

If I knew we were going to have 5:30 am meetings I would not have chosen engineering as my major.

If you do not know where you are going, any road will take you there.

If you have a hammer in your hand, everything looks like a nail.  Chinesse Proverb (or crediting it to a Chinnese Proverb makes it sound good) – I used to work with an Operations Manager who represented this saying very well.

It’s all better (CURE).

Let me make my meddling visible.

Play me or trade me.

This isn’t the Post Office.

Vote with your feet.

Wanna see my Wiki?

Working hard is a cluster “2 -“.

Yes, that’s right, you are absolutely correct.

And a few more from home …………

Engineers fix their mistakes, Doctors bury theirs.

STD = Stop Talking Dad

  1. I always liked: “Tell us what you need… and we’ll tell you how you can live without it.”

  2. You’re as busy as ever, wouldn’t expect anything less. Glad things are going well at work and home, hopefully everyone is adjusting to the change with your kids back in school.

    Things are crazy at work with S/D’s coming up. Same at home but it’s a good crazy. I’m glad you set this up to keep connected, too many have just gone and you never hear back from them. Saw Jerry Bob last week and he’s doing well.

    See you soon. Take care.

  3. Alan – thanks for the note. I was in a little bit last week, had two meetings with ETC – one for Tengiz Wireless Project and one with the ETC Technical Standards group to coordinate getting the new CES Review and Approval work process posted to their web site. I was able to catch up with Don, Gail and Robin – and hellos to a few others. I meant to try and drop by your office but didn’t get there. Will look you up next time I am home in October. Marc

  4. I think we need a team building event when you get back over here Marc. Or as I call it a moral booster. Don K. always wondered what that meant when he was DED Team leader. Ha ha!

    Take care over there Bud!
