Funny Story

I got a chucke out of this story. Probably because I could see myself doing something like this.

You just can't get good service!
Juan Baró in Porlamar swears this is a true story ...
Juan helped a cruiser clear into Venezuela. The next day, the cruiser came back and said, “I’m ready to clear out. The people here are very rude and unfriendly and I want to leave now.” Juan asked the cruiser what happened.
The cruiser said that he had walked into a restaurant in a small town the previous night and no one had seated him so he finally sat down. Although there were people eating at another table, no one brought him a menu or asked him what he wanted to eat or drink. Finally he yelled “Cerveza” and they brought him a beer. But still they never brought a menu. So finally the cruiser pointed at the food on the other table and yelled “Comida!” (food!). They brought him dinner and it was very good, but then when it came time to pay, no one ever gave him the bill.
So in disgust, the cruiser finally put some money on the table and left.
Juan was surprised that the boater had been treated so shabbily. He asked the cruiser for the name of the town where he had this unpleasant experience. When the cruiser told him, Juan replied “But there aren’t any restaurants in that town!”

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
