The Funny Side of Reality

I once heard a story about a person that was having their garage door opener replaced.  They told the repairman that they thought they would need a least a 1/2 horsepower motor.  The repairman said he didn’t think that was enough and recommended a 1/4 horsepower.  When the homeowner said “but that is smaller then the 1/2 horse”, the repairman replied “no it’s not.  Four is bigger then two”.

Funny, but probably not true.  Or is it.  In reality, such people walk among us.  I received the following this morning and thought it too funny not to share.  It kind of makes you think these people must have shown up to swim after the gene pool had already been drained.





About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
