Enhancing Job Titles


https://i1.wp.com/positivesharing.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/12/businesscard.jpgThis sort of thing drives me mad. To give you a brief description of what I mean, I’m talking about the practice of society in which we declare “They’re not a mailman, they’re a postal worker!

Instead of picking nits upon each refinement like this, I’ve decided to come up with a few American job name changes of my own. Enjoy.

Current Job                    New Title

Garbageman………………..Debris Extraction Specialist
Dogcatcher………………….Canine Relocation Engineer
Secretary…………………….Information and Data Administrator
Fast Food Worker………….National Economy Stabilization Agent
Forums Moderator………..Archivist
Blog Writer…………………Scribner
Tier 1 Tech Support………Soon to be Outsourced
Chief Executive Officer…..Bankrupt
Pony Express Rider……….Deceased
FBI Director……………….FBI Director

President…………………..Carrier of Country’s Every Hope and Dream

I amuse myself sometimes.

  2. Japanese take it even further. They’ve continuesly “enhanced” the title of Janitor so much that any previous title is now a serious insult.

  3. Hey, I was going to do a rant about this myself!

    It’s all part of some mysterious mental shift that has occurred and which also drives political correctness–the erroneous idea that calling something by a different name changes it, or, conversely, that the name determines the underlying value of the thing named. I think it all has to do with those postmodern tutorials about linguistic signifiers and when is a cat a cat. Mon dieu!

    The bottom line is that a shit shoveller still shovels shit all day regardless of how you uptitle the job.

  4. LOL- I used to bartend at a strip club (I know, I know) and we always got the occassional new girl that’s “just trying to pay for college” (lmfao) so those girls were our “exotic dancers” but the rest were just the strippers. Some of our customers pretended to buy into it- only to get discounts on their lap dances hahaha. This is great;-P
