Engineering.... I work in broadcast... so I make sure the station is there when you turn your radio on. ( I have no say over content! Just make it work)
Funny, that's what I do as well. I make sure the clients have access, and am in charge of all the moving parts that make it happen behind the scenes.

Neat.

I worked at a town govt office for about 3 days. I think someone called once to ask why their TV was set on Spanish. So the office explained the SAP function to a constituent. I imagine you must get some interesting questions if people think your IT

Dam that’s crazy...

I handle the FM transmitter sites and all that BS that comes along with it and am the default CAT6 & CoAxel cable guy... because the other guys cable management sucks.. and I oddly find peace in it.

Now that everyone is coming back to the office, I am trying to spend as much time at the transmitter sites as possible 😁

They keep things running. automaticly and manualy.. ;)
We like to make things at least at least semi-automated. In reality, our job descriptions are continuously variable. Sometimes we have a real clutch moment, and other days we get bogged down. What really gets us torqued up is when someone tries to convert our output into something it was never designed to do.

Had plenty of manuals in the past. My 2016 GT was a manual. All fun. Then the 10spd came out and I test drove one. WOW. Next thing I knew I was buying an automatic. Plus, my knee hurts when I have to move it too much while driving, so after seeing how great the 10spd was it was a no brainer.

I see what you did there.... people who work in technology are like a Mustang engine? No.. the transmission? I don't know how cars work, the steering wheel right. :giggle:

The traffic argument is trivial with these newer mustangs. Easiest manuals ever.
Is not a matter of difficulty. It’s a matter of repetition. Trust me I’ve driven manuals through more rush hour jambs than I care to remember.

It's my first manual in more than a decade. I love it. It makes the experience more involving and fun. Every trip out is more of an adventure.
