Tons I should think I went from being a Nursing Officer to a Head of Nursing Services to a Service Manager...same kind of job different title but subtley eroding the professional status.

Sounds familiar Bertha.
My niece went from a very proud Theatre Sister to a Band 7 Theatre Practitioner.

Many years ago now, when I was producing children and running a home, I used to give my occupation as domestic executive director.

Geekesse: wish I’d have thought of that title when my children were young— it describes thé job perfectly!!

I'm not your little woman, your darling or your dear
I'm a wage slave without wages, I'm a maintenance engineer.

We sang that when I was a teenager.

Anyone remember who wrote it? I'm thinking Malvina Reynolds, or maybe Peggy Seeger?

I was the secretary at a small village primary school. I used to describe myself as 'educational administrator' or 'the old dragon in the office' depending on my mood.

Years ago if you worked in an office, there was the boss, the supervisor, typists and anyone else was a clerk.
