Life as a Safety Engineer...

Life as a Safety Engineer...

A Seventy-two-year-old Safety Engineer recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the doctor said he was doing "fairly well" for his age.

A little concerned about that comment, the Safety Engineer couldn't resist asking the doctor, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"

The doctor asked, "Well, do you smoke or drink beer?"

"Oh no," He replied, "I've never done either."

Then the doctor asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and BBQ ribs?"

The HSE man said, "No, I've heard that all red meat is very unhealthful!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf?" the doctor asked.

"No, I don't," he replied.

Then the doctor asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or run around with women?"

"No," he said, "I don't do any of those things."

The good doctor looked at the Engineer and said, "Then why the heck do you want to live to be 80?"

I had a feeling that is where this was going. He will most likely live for another 40 years.

You are wise not to refinance your investment property and would recommend you work with a different loan officer.

Make it a great week!

It makes sense, there is logic behind it. Loved it.

My friends had a 94-years old mother, who was getting depressed. She did not eat well, and they complained that she was asking for meat, and refused to eat vegetables, which "were good for her".

Give me a break

Jon Zolsky, Daytona Beach, FL Now that is funny/sad. Leave her alone! If, at 94, she wants nothing but meat maybe her body knows something we don't!

I thought the punch line was going to be the doctor telling the HSE that he was already dead, since he was not doing any of the things the doctor was asking him.

Hi Than,

There is very cute. My dad lived until 86 and he loved to bake rum cakes and give them away and attend the church events. He walked about 5 miles a day at the city college since he had friends there. We had to take his truck away though or he would have killed himself and others as he was always a bad driver but at 80, just the worst.

Good story Than, sometimes merely existing to an old age is not the same as Living to an old age
