What the hell? A few weeks ago I was doing some work at a school and mentioned to my boss, "You think the janitor will lock these doors or should I lock them?" He said "No you better lock them, by the way, you should know that we don't call them Janitors anymore. You might offend them. And its not a good idea to piss them off" Me "Huh?" "okay custodians, how about that?" "No that's bad too" "Then what the hell do I call them?!?" "they are now called Maintenance Managment " Or some bland homogenous title to that effect.... When the hell did Janitors stop being Janitors?!? I feel like this happened all of a sudden too. And this isn't just Janitors... I remember when it was Stewardess and not Flight Attendant. What's the shame in being a Stewardess or Steward? I met some chick who was a hollywood starlet wannabe and she insisted she was an actor!, not an actress. By the way, does that mean a princess is now called prince? How is being an actress worse then being an actor?!? In what way is saying actress sexist? Its getting out of hand. If I was a Janitor, and someone asked me what I did, I would proudly beat my chest and say "IM A JANITOR!, you heard me World!! THATS WHAT I AM! Darn Skippy! I get a pay check!" I wouldn't lower my eyes, grovel and say Im in Maintenance Management. Its like people are ashamed of their jobs or something and are trying to spice them up with the title. But this kind of euphamism only makes it worse, because it sounds like the person is ashamed. Anyone have other examples of the new PC job titles.
