    Ode to the field engineer

    When the earth was created, the power above

    give each man a job to work at and love.
    He made doctors, carpenters and plumbers and then,
    he made lawyers and singers and confidence men.
    And when each had a job to work, as he should,
    the lord looked at them all over and saw that it was good.


    He then sat down to rest for a day.
    When a horrible roar chanced to come his way.
    The lord looked down and his eyes open wide,
    for a motley collection of bums stood outside.
    “Oh! What can they want?” the creator asked then.
    “Help us.” They cried out, “Find a job for us men.
    We have no profession,” they said in dismay.
    “and even the jails have turned us away.”
    Said the lord, “ I ’ve seen many things without worth.
    but here I find gathered the scum of the earth.”

    The lord was perplexed, and then he was mad.
    for all the jobs, there was none to be had!
    Then he spoke aloud in a deep, angry tone,
    “For ever and ever ye mongrels shall roam.
    Ye shall freeze in the summer and sweat when it’s cold.
    Ye shall work on equipment that’s dirty and old.
    Ye shall crawl under raised floors, and cables ye lay.
    Ye shall be called out at midnight and work through the day.
    Ye shall work on all holidays and not make your worth.
    Ye shall be blamed for all downtime that occurs on earth.
    Ye shall watch all the glory go to software and sales.
    Ye shall be blamed by them both if the system then fails.
    Ye shall be paid nothing but sorrow and tears.
    Ye shall be forever cursed and called
    FIELD ENGINEERS!”


    Best regards, Josip



    It's impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious...

    Don't ever underestimate the power of stupid people when they are in large groups.

    Please, don't teach me how to be stupid....
    No job is as important as to jeopardize the safety of you or those that you work with.

    Haha

    Nice one Josip

    I wondered why we got the short end of the stick - it because we are bums

    But for all the bad jobs and whinging customers we do have our good days, paid well to scratch our rear ends

    And observe all the other wonderful creations in the world - Hot Women

    Fantastic!....... the life of a service engineer, one week working a 70 hour week, driving nearly 900 miles and breaking my back lifting and carrying gear, the next week.... 40 hours.....ppm, sat on a roof in the sun eating bacon butties and driving around stunning scenery in the lake district filter bashing.......

    Josip, do I sense mixed feelings?

    I think field engineers are tough!

    You should name your pet though, it melted the field engineer in me (snif)!
