Humor is a mainstay with me, and has altered the outcome of things more than a few times. I see humor as a survival skill as well, because when you have lost the ability to laugh, you have already given up. In another post, I mentioned it was a sense of humor about a prank played on me, that drew my wife to my side. Humor has defused fights, saved me a couple of tickets, and achieved discounts on materials. How has a sense of humor worked for you or against you? The prank that cost me my bachelorhood, was an eraser from a mechanical pencil. It was inserted into my fuel line upstream from an in line fuel filter. It would free float in the fuel line, but would seal and starve the carburetor when it hit the fuel filter. I never found out who did it, but the truck would start, run a few moments, then die, over and over. It could not have been driven like that, and yet I was many miles from home. I called AAA after checking the obvious stuff, and kept looking for the problem. I found the sabotage, when I removed the in line filter to check for a plugged filter (it was fine) but when I lowered the fuel line to reinsert, the eraser slid out into view. This prank required only a screwdriver and an eraser. When I called AAA to cancel the tow truck, I was laughing, and my dispatcher was intrigued, then I could find a prank that cost me time and money could still be funny. She asked me what I had in mind for my day off work, since I had already called off, due to car trouble? I responded "I could take you out for dinner....." (which she promptly shot down, and hung up. She was new at the job, and had a crew trainer there with her, and had no idea how to respond professionally, so refused) (Crew trainer told her she was nuts) She then wrote me a note, since she had my info on screen, saying I had made her day, and if the offer was still open, she would accept. We had our date, and many more, and that note is framed on the wall now. How has humor changed your life?
