So my new Business Card
s arrived the other day. I was looking forward to it since at my last employer
there was a policy against printing Qualifications
on business cards and I was finally looking forward to using
my letters at last
When the cards arrive however, my letters are conspicuously absent and it is explained to me that Object Oriented
has just recently instituted a policy against qualifications on business cards too. What the fuck is going on?.
This policy is following me. No one ever seems to be able to explain the reasoning behind it either. Its like some sort
of giant business card conspiracy.
They also came back listing my title as 'Consultant' rather than 'Software Engineer' as I had asked. ( Well actually I asked for 'Computer Geek' but I settled for Software Engineer ). It's true that I consult but then these days people who sell mobile phones in the street are called consultants. sigh.
Im going to stop obsessing about it now because Im starting to sound like Patrick Bateman.
