Today I was talking to Mr. G after church about transit engineers. Now, to me, "Transit Engineer" could have 2 meanings... The first would be, "a person who plans & designs for transit", the second, "a person who drives transit, like a train driver". So I asked which type of engineer he was referring to, & he informed me that Transit Engineers are only the former, in Canada, & the latter is a "driver". If a person who drives were to publish a paper, for instance, & call themselves an "engineer", they'd get a cease & desist letter. It was an enlightening conversation!
Another friend, Miss K, walked up & handed me some cash for some vases I picked up at a thrift store for her, & we were discussing how many more they still needed for an upcoming event. I told her, "I'll keep looking for them until you tell me to decease." A moment later I realized I had messed up the 'cease & desist' phrase!
