I am an auto technician for a Toyota dealer, so I just make fun of all the dumb ways engineers design things with no care in the world how we're supposed to fix it

But cooking was my first job and one of my great loves...Anytime I can make something and consume it, it is a good day.
Can I have your business card?

Both my parents are engineers, and I studied electrical engineering for two years before I decided to study music. I now work as a systems software technician for a dallas arts consortium.

It's becoming obvious from this poll and people's descriptions of their jobs that the word "Engineer" has become a one size fits all term designed to make ordinary jobs look more interesting.

The official title of my first job I had after I finished my carpentry an joinery apprenticeship was "After sales service engineer".........I fixed leaky windows and replaced bad double glazed units.

I like to cook and I'm not afraid of hand tools, power tools, and building stuff. I have no issues fixing anything mechanical or making something as long as I have tools and an idea of how to do it.

Educated as an engineer.

Hated living my life in a cubicle.

Now I am in management basically, as a captain.

Except I get to travel.
