This is a fascinating thread , brother. Don't worry! , I've worked at the same place almost 40 years now. I work for a municipally owned power company ( fairly common in New England ) I spent some years as a meter reader,then a couple years as a sub station operator , then transferred to an underground cable splicers position. I was what the overhead guys called a" sewer lineman" because of all the time we spent in manholes , but I was cross trained as a bucket lineman too. After 20 years of that , I retired from high voltage work , but my company hired me back for 3 days a week driving truck , delivering stock to job sites and my most important function....cooking for the guys during hurricanes and snowstorms. So I get to stay inside where it's warm and dry and cook hot food for my lineman brothers who are braving the elements. Good duty !
