This post is specially for the engineer geeks and nerds among us, who can see the humorous side of the people who call themselves engineers.
Let us share our thoughts in one-line, you know you're an engineer if...
^ Begin the line with those words and write your own line.

Here are some old ones -

Your know you're an engineer if... you have no life and can prove it mathematically.
Your know you're an engineer if... you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.

    You know you're an Engineer when you can solve the most difficult questions on Differential Calculus, but don't know what date it is πŸ˜”

    Every time , in exams it happens with me. Always, asking what date it is.

    From my 1st year of engineering, I can recall one particular line that I have heard on several occasions from different people and that was (on similar lines to the thread title)-

    "You are not an engineer if you don't get a KT (abbreviation for 'keep terms' in Mumbai University)"

    Not a statement I would like to endorse though πŸ˜›

    Just came to my mind, so shared it πŸ˜€
