“If you walk around with a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.”  Unknown.

On the job on a hot, dusty, summer day.

Gate Guard: “Question for you……..this is site Smith  1H.  The other job I was on was Sheldon 2H. What does the H stand for?”

Worker: “Don’t know.”

Gate Guard: “Question for you……….what does the H stand for in Smith 1H?”

Worker2: “Hmmm……You know what….I don’t know.”

Gate Guard: “God……..I hope you can answer this. I’ve asked many roustabouts….several pushers and one driller and no one knows. What does the H stand for in Smith 1H?”

Co Clerk:  After much thought:   “I don’t know. No one has ever asked me that before. Interesting question. I’ll ask the Co Man.”

Gate Guard: “This is amazing. All of these guys with all of those years of experience and not one knows what the H stands for. In fact, none of them was ever curious enough to ask.”

Friend who has been in the oil/gas business forever……………”I don’t know what the H stands for and who cares. Only you would wonder about something as inconsequential as that. That’s your problem. I think you’re insane.”

Gate Guard: “You must have cream spinach for brains.”

Several days later.

Gate Guard: “Well, I can only conclude that it is what I thought it was. The H stands for hole. Sometimes the answer is so obvious, you can’t see it. I am so brilliant.”
