Engineering and chicks certainly don't mix well
You've obviously never worked in the right engineering fields!
My last role was installing and servicing MRI scanners in large veterinary practices and I never got bored of meeting stable girls wearing johdpurs! ( I even hatched an evil plan with one of my customers where we used to tell the best ones that they had to remove their bras while we scanned their horses or their underwiring would cause image artifacts
Now work with nurses everyday!
I can honestly say that I have never got to chat-up so many fit women through just 'doing my job' as I do now
As for not being a 'proper' engineer, I fix equipment that saves peoples lives and sometimes work under enormous pressure to do so, which I feel is more the role of a 'proper engineer' who spends his life in the comfort of a lab....... rant over
