On Sunday, I bought some supplies to repair the masonry steps in front of the house. I purchased trowels, some quik-crete, and (Tesla’s personal favorite) a brick hammer:
On the way home, Tesla pulled the hammer out of the bag and made several observations about other potential uses for the device. (Mostly violent and/or illegal, but all in the spirit one might expect from a mystery author’s son.)
About halfway home, he set the hammer down and said, “Well, I won’t be using it.”
I bit. “Why not?”
“The safety label says ‘Caution: wear safety goggles, user and observer*,’ and I don’t know how to wear the observer properly.”
Corporate grammar 0, Tesla 1.
* And yes, this is the exact text of the label and warning. Some things are too entertaining not to mention.

Haha, grammar fail! Hmmm, yet the question remains, does Tesla know how to wear a user properly?
Unfortunately, no. I haven’t found a good curriculum for teaching that yet… (lol)
