Why my job is cool:

Boss: Hey, can you check the timing system and make sure everything is working for the track day coming up?

Me: Sure... *click click click* Yep, all the loop triggers are up and running, so everything's good to go.

Boss: Grab a transponder and take a few laps just to be sure.

Me: Sure, no sweat.

Me: Hey, I'm going to be taking a few laps to test timing.

Dir of Facilities asst: Ok. Grab the keys for one of the BMWs instead of driving your own car.

Me: Sure thing, I'd be happy to burn someone else's gas and tires.
