Conversation with my boss' boss, while we were reviewing a document:

Him: "Cockpit Monitor Technician"? What's that?

[speaking at the same time]
Me: No idea, but it sounds cool. That's what I want to be when I grow up.
Him: Oh, I see, they just mean a knob twiddler...

[pause as we each take in what the other has said]
Me: knob twiddler...
Him: ...and that's what you want to be when you grow up?

At this point the document review was abandoned due to the inability of any of the participants to speak. :-)

This from a woman who looks high-powered and intimidating in business suits, and who really ought to know better ;)
