Recently, this BRM* (Budding Renaissance Man) was asked by someone if his company could use a machinist.
"No, we don't really need machinists," I said.
"But your company has machines," he said.
I realized I was talking to someone who didn't know what a machinist did. So I explained:
"A machinist operates a machining machine to machine parts that need machining."BRMs are men of few words.
* BRM is a registered trademark of Budding Renaissance Man. Sort of.
