I'm sure some of you are familiar with my "Alpha Complex" stories of my normal job. I've got a quick story about my other job.
I own a small business where we build, install, repair and remove personal boat docks. Mostly on Lake Chautauqua but also a few on other local lakes and ponds. Plus a few on the Niagara River.
I was talking to a customer the other morning who was convinced that my crew wouldn't be able to move his boat lift. ( I didn't want to tell him that I could move it by myself.) So I told him, well A was a d-lineman for(insert local school) B was the starting center for (insert local school) And C was all state.
He looked at me (I'm 6' 240lbs and bigger than all three other guys) and asked what position I played?
I played chess, thats why I'm the boss.

Was the customer smart enough to get your joke?

@ Doctor X I doubt it. More money than brains.
@MarescialloDiCampo I've been installing this dock for years. The original owners moved and he was the new owner. He was real impressed with our "ability" (cough) to move it. I have a feeling he's the kind of guy that only sweets at tax time.
