Monday’s Musing – Don’t Screw With Me

He lays a pile of hardware on my desk, and looks at me, inquisitively.

It’s a test.  A pop quiz.

“Phillips flathead, Phillips panhead, this one is a lug bolt, not a screw,” I answer.  “And these are what you call ‘sheet metal’ screws because of the sharp tip, but they call them something else at the hardware store.”

He raises an eyebrow in surprise, “I’m impressed.”

I sigh.  I am so unimpressed that I consider this exchange unworthy of a pun.

I go back to paying bills.
