What is a Field Engineer?

Submitted by Robin Ashley

When the earth was created, the powers above gave each man a job to work at and love. He made doctors,lawyers and plumbers and then he made carpenters, singers, and confidence men.

And when each had a job to work, as he should, God looked them over and saw it was good. He then sat down to rest for a day, when a HORRIBLE groan chanced to come his way. The Lord then looked down,and his eyes opened wide, for a motley collection of bums stood there.

"OH! What can they want?" The Creator asked them. "Help us," they cried out, "a JOB for us men, we have no profession," they cried 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 - then he was MAD. For all the jobs, there were NONE to be had.

Then he spoke aloud, in a deep angry tone - FOREVER and EVER ye mongrels shall roam. Ye shall FREEZE in the summer and SWEAT when its cold. Ye shall work on equipment thats DIRTY and OLD.

Ye shall CRAWL under raised floors, and where cables lay. Ye shall be called out at MIDNIGHT and work through the day. Ye shall work on HOLIDAYS and not make your WORTH. Ye shall be BLAMED for all DOWNTIME. Ye shall watch all the GLORY go to SOFTWARE & SALES.

Ye shall be paid nothing out of SORROW and TEARS. Ye shall forever be CURSED and be called "FIELD ENGINEERS"
