Proof: Engineer is Poor

Long long time ago, Engineer is considered as a highly respected and well-paid job. Now it is really a different case. Lots and lots of engineers get retrenched in Malaysia. I guess it is no longer considered as a high paying job now. Let me try to show some proofs by comparing me to my peers:

 

This is what is currently driven by my close friend, a Research Analyst.

 

How about my IT Director friend? Honda Civic 2008!

 

He is considering switching to Mercedes some more.

 

My doctor friend is driving a BMW currently.

 

And my friend who graduated with the same engineering course as me but decided to turn pilot has bought a Volkswagen Golf GTI.

 

As for me (an engineer) and my boss’s boss ; we are still settling with a national brand.

 

To make thing even worse, my boss’s boss who wanted to do an expensive tinting on her Proton was response with a big laugh by the tinting guy because the tinting might cost more than her car!

 

Engineering is really a poor job. L

You should go tint your car together with your boss's boss, so that both of you can get a better price.
