Job titles!

Thinking of how job titles have changed over the years.

When I was plumbing, I was a plumber, now I'd be a 'Heating engineer'
When I was driving lorries I was a lorry driver, now I'd be a 'Trucker'

When I fitted kitchens I was a fitter but if I was out and someone asked my job I would tell them I was a kitchen designer if I needed to impress them.
Believe it or not the more skill you have the less people think of you.
As we all know most kitchen designers are sales people that can use a Cad package on a computer.

Same goes for a Manager, now they are Directors and most are Directors in name only!
Most Managers nowadays are just puppets!
It is all about show!

What about

Customer service engineer...salesman

Waste removal engineer...bin man.

It's a bit like that ad a good few years ago now, i think it was BT, which said that if you had an ology after your name you had made it. Maureen Lipman.
