The most interesting job title in Canberra?

By johnboy - 13 February 2009 70

Poptop has emailled in the following job title which was affixed to an email she received:

    Kellie White
    Life Enhancer to Winsome Willow,
    Manager of Inanna Inc
    Crisis Service for
    Women & Families in Distress

For those who don’t dabble in the mystic Inanna is the Sumerian “goddess of life and royal power”.

Have you come across better?

What’s Your opinion?

Hmmmn, how about ‘Director of First Impressions’ for a receptionist, seriously.

When Hollingworth was appointed Governor General there was a bit of a kafuffle about whether to call him Archbishop or Governor General.

Surely GG would win, since that title is the one of incredible importance to the population of Australia, who he was working for, while Archbishop only relates to people who share the same imaginary friend who is a two thousand year old Jewish zombie.

F#ck it, just get on and sue me for defamation already…

Better add me to the class action.

When Hollingworth was appointed Governor General there was a bit of a kafuffle about whether to call him Archbishop or Governor General. They got around this by awarding him an honorary doctorate, because Doctor out-ranks both Archbishop and Governor General; who would have thunk it, and who would care. Oh, I – if forgot – those kids he fiddled with might care. Ops, he never fiddled with any kids, he – or his boyfriend – just thought it was OK or something, right?!?

F#ck it, just get on and sue me for defamation already…

I helped/worked at a sports carnival today and my job title was ‘Ass programmer’. Best job title that I ever had.

Perhaps Life Enhancer is the new public service speak for coffee maker.

I can remember a few times when a nice cup of coffee enhanced my life no end.

Seriously, those gods and goddesses were worse than ‘Days of Our Lives’ …. The writers of those soapie-genre shows seem totally inspirationally-challenged by comparison!

LMAO!

I hadn’t realised the this would be such a hot topic. I had received the title in an email from a widely available distribution list and so regarded it as public property.

The work Inanna does is in the main admirable but is undertaken at public expense so I decline to get too excited about any prospective knock on effects. Frankly the people Inanna decline services to or withdraw services from would be of greater interest.

Inanna as a name for a women’s crisis service is also particularly hilarious. In essence, Goddess Inanna tried to steal her Goddess sister’s throne, failed, was hung from a spike and left to rot, was rescued by men under instruction from a God and seems to have spent the rest of eternity as some sort of trophy wife to royalty.

I’m still pondering the intended message to Womyn-kind in all this. I suspect that the workers in Inanna have been playing a long and deeply subtle joke on the community.

I think Shitty Little Jobs Officer is a good one. I was so enamoured of this job title I went to great lengths to ensure that the position existed on our family organisational chart while I was Captain!

*snort*

Then my dad came to visit and over-ruled me and I had to take it down …. *sigh*
