I wonder if your profession is a teacher? Just curious.
You're not too far wide of the mark. I'm a university employee, but not on the teaching/lecturing staff. Most of my career has been in communication engineering, specifically satellite broadcasting and TV, but for the four years since that came to an end I've been sidelined (not by choice) into a form of IT, as it was too expensive for the organisation to get rid of me and there was too much riding on the pension for me to want to go!
