      .... and where I used to work there was a woman like that signed all her emails with 6+++ titles not just the one that applied. So to mock her I would sign my emails to her with Title Whore as one of my many titles (more like Hats I wore) ... and btw some people really are Title Whore's although NO ONE ON THIS GROUP!

      Too funny, Ralph!

      One summer that I worked at a Scout camp, we had the misfortune of hiring a nurse who seemed to have great paper credentials, but who was a total flake. Seriously, she had to be removed. So, while still on staff, she would leave notes on the door of the Health Lodge that might read, "Nurse has gone to the..."(laundry/ admin building, etc.) and sign it **** ****, RN, BSN, MA, and a whole list of (probably expired) certifications for any course she had ever taken. To mock the practice, some of us (who ME?) started writing similar notes. Mine had a string that went something like Rosaleen S..., SSD, MRS, EMT, PHT, GTB, RB. Probably some more that I could think up then. SSD was shooting Sports Director, Mrs. you will recognize, I WAS an EMT at the time, Put Hubby Through some will get, GTB was Goddess of the Temple of Boom, but some twisted it to Gun-Toting B****, Rifle B*** was another. There may have been some more initials tacked on, but the GTB
      has had a few of us chuckling for at least 10-15 years.
