I Are An Engineer

We're currently going through some job reclassifications at work and my new prospective title is "Senior Project Engineer". I like the sound of it but I'm not a professional engineer and APEGGA gets a bit antsy about the use of the word.

I have to say I'd thought that the engineering societies had pretty much locked the term down to be available to their members only, but it looks as if that's not the case in Alberta or several US states. I may yet have an opportunity to make the old joke:

Yesterday I culdn't spel enginer; today I are one!

…and now I’m not again. My employer decided that discretion was the better route. I can’t blame them but it was fun while it lasted.

With all of the problems with children’s toys these days, couldn’t they have given you a less toxic moniker?

It’s ok; we don’t do any work in China.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
