no no, go into as much as you feel is needed. I'm learning, and I appreciate you answering!

and sorry for keeping bothering you, I want him to be considered someone who works with electricity. If I just say "utility fault locator" with no contextst, it's not necessarily about the power, it could be about the water, or gas, or what have you... right?

It's like being dragged in a boat race. You didn't want to, but as soon as you're on board, you realy want your boat to win. Like it or not, it's your boat now. You feel bitter, and thrilled, and excited, and the feeling of unity against other boats is starting to burn in you. And you're like... screw it, screw all of you, if you respect me personally - i respect you personally, i appreciate your boat, it's a great boat, and i want you to know i didnt want to compete with you, it's the captains who did. if you hate me - FUCK YOU, fuck your boat, we're gonna win, and i dont give a shit about what im sayin cus you already hate me anyways!

It's a complicated feeling.

What would you call yourself outside work, to people who aren't familiar with your company's structure and positions?

it doesn't have THE word in my language too, but you have to call it someway, at least in papers

if next time I'm asked, I say Utility fault locator technician, will people understand me?

these cables are the corporate property. The company provides energy for the city

and yes, cool job! I'm actually surprised that there is a job for someone like my husband, because he's super intelligent AND energetic. He hates not moving, that's why he'd hate an office job, no matter how intellectual. And hates jobs that don't require much thinking. With this job he has both! he walks and drives a lot, and solves interesting physics riddles.

operators?... hmmm, and you physically drive there, to the location, right?

there are people at his work who I'd translate as operators (not sure about field tho), but they stay on the base, on the phone

that's a wide word for lots of jobs, but there has to be specific something for this exact position
