Morning all, Woke up with a case of the smart arse this morning. Mind wondered back to the days of my youth. I did commercial & industrial & residential electrical construction for 29 years. I was called " Spark Chaser" "Sparky" a ton a spark reference names. I used to refer to the plumbers on the job as " Turd Herders" or "Dookie Doctors". I once knew a plumber that actually had this as a slogan on the side of his van & on his business cards........" Your shat is, my bread & butter". I used to call my company Chicken & Feathers Renovations....cause one week we eat chicken......the next week we eaten feathers. Sure glad my company grew.LOL.....Whats yours nick names ATS ???

LMAO! S&F, I needed a good laugh this morning.

We have a sparky....but we mean it badly. He is our pointless electrician.
We have one manager that drives everyone nuts over the stupidest stuff. We call her the CLO of our hospital....it stands for Chicken Little Officer.

Blanket Stacker for a Storeman. Scab Lifter for a medic, Donkey Walloper for the Household Cavalry etc. Crumb duster/skip licker for a cook. The UK military has a nickname for every trade or role you can imagine.

My father delivered and installed sewage pumps and claimed to be a turd-flow technician, to my mothers chagrin. A friend of mine worked in PAT testing of rented tools, and had a name badge (never was front of desk, never met any customers, he just wanted one) with the job title 'Pixie Wrangler'. Those pixies have a mean bite!

Bean counters - the accountants.

ANAL-ysts - the sort that are brought in having no idea of how the business actually works but are on about 3 times your pay.

C*ntsultants - Sea gulls, come in make a load of noise and leave a load of s**t to be cleaned up when they've gone.

Sparkies - Electricians.

Chippies - Carpenters.

Management - no idea of whats going on normally but just bluffing it to those higher up so they can get more money and a company car.

When the hubby was in the laborer's Union, all the brick layers were called Cry Babies. Apparently they couldn't get ANYTHING for themselves.

But my Favorite was the "Tin Knockers". They had the funniest T-shirts. I know there is a member or former member of that union on this site.

This is how men become Australian.

When I worked HVAC [ we installed all the heat and AC in new construction ] for several years, I called plumbers "Those mother**** SOBs that keep putting pipes in the way of where I need to put ductwork". It was all in good fun and we gave each other sh** all the time and got together to go over the plans to see how to work with each other, till.......
We had some plumbers who we'd never worked with before, move a furnace and rip out a plenum and about 30 ft of main ductwork to run pipe. We weren't there when it happened, but we found it the next day. They didn't take out the drive cleats and disassemble it....they just beat it apart with hammers. Ruined all of it, so I had to remake the reducers and put in new boots.
My boss came out and personally cut out the same amount of hard copper line, beat it flat with a hammer and threw it on the ground. Not one solid peice, he went and cut 3 ft out of a bathroom, 2ft of the cold water line under a sink, under the floor, pipes that ran through walls, etc...Don't know what happened after that, but I know that particular plumber was never on any more of our job sites.

Assistant Manager = Ass Man
Shop foreman was "the Head", not so bad but he hated it so it became the official name for the shop

My co-workers in the Police and Fire Department call me "CRASH".

Working a local festival 6 years back, a woman and her child stepped in front of my vehicle (golf cart), wasnt hurt, but tried to sue 1st the city, the golf cart donors, then the agency I represented...and finally, me. She lost...but they started calling me "CRASH". Fine.

After a couple years of being called that, they finally stopped...until someone hit my vehicle...and they started up again. Took another few for them (especially the Police who have an affinity for digging it in to me)...to stop calling me that...again.

And then....? Yep. Day before this year's Thanksgiving...someone hit my city vehicle...and now I'm forever stuck with "CRASH".

We had a person who was hired that called himself an electrician, but he was terrible. We called him an Indian Electrician.
I got in trouble calling him that until I told them I was part Cherokee.

Indian Electrician:
One wire hook-em up,
Two wire fook-em up,
Three wire blow-em up!

He blew up several pieces of expensive warehouse equipment so they made him a supervisor. Go figure...
