@Hailey, You are right, the real meaning and importance of objects are understood in the context in which they are used. A UPS truck is only useful when it fully participates in the smooth "running" of the supply chain.

@Nemos: People rarely get annoy on a job that they like. Whether we are doing an IT job or an engineering job, we can still be part of the chain that connects the manufacturing plant to the end customers or users.

It's amazing when you sit where we do, you start looking at the world in new ways. A UPS truck is no longer a UPS truck but rather the last step in a chain that stretches to African ore mines where the first step in component manufacture sits. The same with the many electronics products that touch our lives. All in all, it's really cool.

"They do require expertise, but more like programming or IT -- in other words, jobs that are closer to the user than engineering jobs."

Although I prefer the tech jobs from the other hand, this "close" connection with the final customers it is not always so "interactive" and in some cases really annoying....
