The author is a cranky old man with a twisted sense of humor.
He is retired from the metal fabrication industry and lives in the foothills of southern California with a wonderful wife and three foolish dogs. When not reading or writing he practices genealogy and collects photographs of some rather amazing wildlife. You can see the wildlife photos at the author's website. Look for the bear's eye on the bio page.

You don't have to be familiar with the industry to appreciate the humour in this anecdote. Fortunately, mankind displays enough quirks to keep all businesspeople from getting too complacent, and the pragmatic solution to this particular dilemma is sure to improve your day.
The author has combined the knowledge of an insider with skilfully built suspense and a wry sense of the ridiculous.
