The Expert: Wrong Angle (Short Comedy Sketch)


Hello? Hi my name is Timothy Garner, I’m
the head of the Linear Solutions Department. Could I please speak with
Andersen? Hi, Timothy. I’m still waiting for your reply to the
email I sent earlier. Uh yes, I was about to– I’ve got a progress meeting in 10 minutes, I don’t have time for any chitchat. I did some research on the Internet and I think we
need to use a right angle for the Council’s Square project. Yes, we do. I’m
actually working on it– I’m pretty sure we need it. As a matter of fact, having
thought about it I’m convinced we do. I’ll propose that in the progress
meeting. Yes, we will need a right angle for the square project.
As I said I’m actually working on it– Oh! I need you to find out how big a right angle is! It’s.. 90 degrees. That doesn’t sound right to me. Isn’t it a hundred or something?
Surely it’s a round number! No it is exactly–
May need to double check this with Williamson. Out of curiosity, how big is a
left angle? That must be the one that’s 90. There’s no such thing as a left angle..? Obviously we wouldn’t be using a left angle. That just wouldn’t be right, so, if you have already used any you need to right them right away. Basically, I need
you to research how big a right angle is, and while you’re at it might as well
check out the left one too! I have to run to the progress meeting now, but I’m
expecting an email with your findings later today. If you come over here, I can show you a right angle and explain everything. On your side it would be pointing the other way though, wouldn’t it? Anyway, gotta run.
I’ll report that you’ll be sending everyone an angle update later today and
I’ll personally ensure you won’t be using any left angles for the project. Thanks. *exhale* Make sure all the right angles are all
right. All right? Yes, I will ensure they’re all right. Just alright is not good enough for us. They must be perfect!

    Well, if a right angle is 90 degrees then a left angles are also a 90 degrees 😉

    You know you are dealing with idiots with huge complexes who need to knock others on the head to feel good, when you hear sentences like "alright is not enough. we have to be perfect." just to have the last word while having no clue at all. I often ask myself if they believe the theater they are playing for themselves…

    I worked at this place where we had Windows 95 running on a bunch of Pentium 4 work stations. One day, the boss decided that we should upgrade to Windows XP (which I agreed). The problem was that her boyfriend told her that Windows XP couldn't run on a P4 and, according to her, he is really smart. I brought up that we had some old Pentium 2 computers and one had Windows XP on it. So…we upgraded all the workstation computers to P2 with Windows XP. My assistant (who wasn't even an engineer) told me that she was going to go home and cry after I explained to her that is how we have to keep these people happy.

    Boss: "Isn't a right angle a round number, like 100 degrees?"
    Expert: "No. 100 degrees is a libertarian angle. And 75 degrees would be a far-right angle."

    "About 90."
    "That doesn't sound right. I've heard it is 100, 120 or sonething."

    This is the reality with worthless office people holding upper positions having absolutely no clue how the ground work is done. This isn't funny in any way, it's actually hurtful and a pain to watch. These scums then go back home and tell their children how worthy a work they have done throughout the day.

    Typical call from a sales guy! I am a mechanical engineer and I refused to design a foundation for a large cryogenic tank. The guy was arguing and laughing at me until I said: “I know enough about civil engineering to conclude that I am not competent enough to design the civil foundation for a tank.” This is my real life story!

    True story: while working at a major pharmaceutical firm in NYC, I knew a young woman who had a master's degree in statistical analysis from Columbia. Her father was also a math professor at a major university. One day we were just shooting the breeze when I mentioned, in passing, as part of a longer train of thought, that of course both 10 and -10 are square roots of 100. It wasn't even the main point I was trying to make, but she stopped me and said "Wait a minute. Are you sure about that?" I must have stared at her in disbelief for a solid five seconds before saying "Y-y-yeah, I'm sure about that. But it doesn't matter if I or anybody else is sure or not, all you have to do is multiply -10 by -10 and see what answer you get." "Hmmm…" she said. "I don't know about that. I'm gonna have to ask my dad about that one." I tried for a little bit to remind her that two negative numbers multiplied result in a positive number, but gave up in frustration. Next day I see her at work, and she very grudgingly said "Yeah, I talked to my dad about it and he said you're right. But I don't know. There was something wrong in the way you put it, I'm pretty sure." She was that desperate to show that I somehow still had to be wrong, because she was the professional mathematician, after all. I've never met anyone remotely as intellectually insecure as her, though to be fair I guess she had very good reason to be intellectually insecure.

    I literally had a customer tell me “you don’t understand, there’s a whole lot of pressure in those cylinders when they got the engine brakes on.”

    I have a degree in mechanical engineering but work as a diesel technician… people assume I’m retarded half the time because I work on heavy-haul trucks… this is seriously how I feel almost every day.

    I asked him how many psi… long pause… “well at least 500psi”
    (The real answer… upwards of 3000psi) I just walked away at this point and made sure the key-code door locked behind me.

    "Why yes sir, I think you're thinking of 'percent pi half radians'. Good old PPHR rating. A proper right angle has a one hundred PPHR rating. One thing though: To make a proper square we'll need four of them, so I think your department is 75% understaffed. I can still do it on schedule though."
