If you think you have a difficult j*b, take a look at this excellent documentary about pilots (and mechanics) in Colombia.
I am not sure whether the gas barrels or the weight calculations were more disconcerting.

It's not just now that we have long and difficult job titles. In Staffordshire the saggar maker's bottom knocker was a skilled job needed to ensure pottery was fired correctly. James Sherwood, Biddulph, Staffordshire

My title is kinda corny and embarrassing. Driver Champion. I work at an industrial gases company. Some days I drive a truck, and some days I'm in the office pushing paperwork. Part of the job is to do annual certifications and observations on other drivers. It's sort of a safety position also.

Just wrapped up 25 years with a major insurance company (I worked in a weird little backwater of the company's operations. When I told people within the company what I did, the typical response was "we do that?

Posting here for quite some time, but have never noticed this thread.

I won't bore you with the history...

I'm an Industrial Engineer by degree and turned into a Software Engineer somewhere about halfway through. Did project and personnel management, but life was too short for that crap...give me some code to write!
