Fwd: Another Thought from Texas

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In the mid-1980s, I visited the office of a structural engineer
practicing in a small town in East Texas.  Carefully lettered at eye
level on the entrance door was the following message to all prospective
clients and other visitors:
______________________________________________________________________

We offer services that are:

A)	High Quality
B)	Fast
C)	Inexpensive

Please select any two.
______________________________________________________________________

Think about it!  Perhaps the Piney Woods of Texas and the Deserts of
California have something in common other than timber construction.

Regards,

Stan R. Caldwell, P.E.
Dallas, Texas
