You know I used to say I was a rigger because it was a nice neutral term. But… well people have kind of turned it into a title of sorts and now people start posts with “I’m a rigger!” and it makes me cringe. Not least because I think… You’re a rigger (in the titled sense you now mean it) and I think NO you’re not, you’d maybe like to think you are but you’re someone who maybe once in a while uses rope and it’s a far cry from that to someone who can really rig.
See if you want to use it like that especially about yourself you’d damn well better be able to do it. And most of you that have latched on to the previously serviceable and unpretentious word and turned it into a title and use it that way are exactly the people that it shouldn’t apply to in that way.
People seem obsessed with creating titles for themselves. Shut up and do some good rope instead.
If you were good you wouldn’t need ‘titles’ for yourself no would you?
