Bragging on your soldering skills only works if you want things to heat
up quickly and cool almost as fast ;)

I usually tell 'em I mostly sit around and drink donuts and eat coffee.
If they catch the 'error', I'll usually give a more useful answer, like
that I'm an electronic traffic cop. =20

I started doing that when I'd tell folks I'm a microwave engineer &
they'd ask me to fix their oven...=20

I've always wanted my 'rigged' business card to read "Engineering
Insultant".  Never had a department admin with the sense of humor to
stick me with it tho'.
