Mrs. Cow shared with me from her Facebook page.  A friend is moving and announced the movers were coming soon.  Another friend asked when the movers were coming.  She told them the surveyor had to come by first to look over all of their possessions to determine the proper size of moving truck needed.

I had a College Professor that was moving and hired some College kids from class to help load up the U-haul, no kidding he measured every box, and the U-haul, and made a sketch of how every box could fit in the U-haul.

Do people still play Tetris?

We had a band at the arts venue recently that had the art down solid.  When they packed the trailer, they started with the B3 organ and Leslie cabinet, then the bass and guitar amps, monitor mix rack, miscellaneous road cases, etc. with everything just fitting its spot.

When they finished there was about room for a laptop computer left in that trailer.  I was amazed.

I remember once I was asked to measure some cabinets at the beach house we were renting. The guy said, "I know if I ask a surveyor to do it, I will get more than I need"! one gets out alive!

Tuesday, I went to the doctor and she asked what I do for a living. I answered that I am a surveyor and she says, "oh, you work outside". I replied, "no ma'am, I work inside" and she automatically assumed it was a different kind of surveying (coke or pepsi, not land).
