I know someone who has a PhD in Electrical Engineering. He was a top dog in the Aeronautics field for over 40 years, and retired just after the
company he worked for was sold. He can map out the computer software for a complete flight navigation system unrivaled by any one in his field. He
was the go to guy, and he always solved the problems. He earned around $165,000 a year.
Is he smart? Not really!
He doesn't know how to change a flat tire. His car can have a tire going flat, and he doesn't notice the car pulling off to one side, or is
handling funny before the tire is finally flat.
An alternator can be going out, with squealing bearings, and he won't hear it.
He doesn't notice he has a headlight out. But takes the car right in to the dealer when the CD player is on the fritz.
He is unable to coordinate a suit, shirt, tie, belt, socks, and shoes.
He only knew how to make a can of soup, or a bag of pop corn. ( he is learning basics now)
His English-Spelling and Penmanship skills are on the level of a fourth grader.
He does not know how to repair anything around the house. Not one thing!
If he tries, he makes it worse!
He thinks it is just fine to run a car on its same oil for 10,000 miles. Only when it is as thick as tar, does he have it changed. ( they buy a new
car every five years)
He won't wash a car in the winter. So it stays nice and salty all winter long. (costs too much money)
At 2 1/2 years old, he'll have the car touched up, and buffed out, trying to undo his lack of care.
He doesn't change the oil in his mower. He takes it to Sears, and has them do it.
He doesn't know how to true the edge a kitchen knife with a truing rod.
When the knife goes dull, he buys a new one.
I could go on and on...
He and his wife haven't had sex for thirty years. He isn't a very good intimate partner. ( she found satisfaction somewhere else, while he worked 70
hour weeks) She told me he was just plain lousy, and didn't have the wherewithal to try and learn. She told me; "He just doesn't get it!"
He thinks he is so wise when it comes to relationships, and will tell you so.
( reads Dear Abby, Ann Landers etc. everyday, for 40+ years) Yet, He hasn't been able to kiss his wife on the mouth, touch her, or sleep in the same
bed for over twenty years...His pet name for her is: "Angel"
He never was very close to his adopted child while she grew up. Now, he throws money at her to buy her love. She isn't very warm at all. Shes 40
today! She's closer to her mother...but not him. He thinks he is a great dad!
He hasn't taken care of his teeth, and they look bad. However, he goes to the hair salon every three weeks, and has his hair styled. Which is a joke,
because what he ends up with, is an old fashioned, old mans hair cut. Costs him 40 bucks too!
He is over weight, has ungodly high blood pressure, is not very good looking, and has no friends...but, claims he would still make a good catch if
he's widowed at 70. ( the wife has health issues today ) He himself is in remission from Wegners Granulomtosis. Which still shows signs of activity
on his skin in places. But, he thinks he's a great catch!
He isn't very tolerant of other people, and is rude, over bearing, and arrogant.
His wife is very sweet, sort of shy, nice looking, has a wonder sense of style and is very fastidious about her hygiene. She is also highly
intelligent. She holds a Masters Degree in Teaching.
She told him many times she wanted a divorce. He begged her not to do it.
Her other companion begged her to leave him. ( I have always somewhat suspected that her husband was aware something was amiss. But, never confronted
her. Because he is basically a coward )
His reasons were purely selfish. He didn't want to appear like a loser to his mom and dad, and to his co-workers.
She stayed, but it was a loveless marriage. She tolerated his presence.
He became a total fool...because he is only fooling himself.
So to me, he isn't very intelligent at all.
