The dangerous job of setting up lane closures so road construction can be accomplished. Consists of setting up signs, arrowboards, and deliniation devices. Traffic control technicians also instal temporary pavement markings. These include the white and yellow lane dividers and edgelines. They spend their work day trying not to get killed and making it safe for drivers and workers
Without proper Traffic Control road construction would not be possible.

A person who directs pilots from the ground in order to ensure the safe, orderly and expeditious flow of air traffic through his/her airspace.

The air traffic controllers at high volume airports and enroute centers have one of the most stressful jobs in the world and are often unfairly blamed for airport delays. A given airport can only handle a certain number of flights per hour, and the airlines frequently schedule more flights than that number, causing delays that even the most skilled controller could not avoid. Furthermore, each controller is allowed three losses of separation minimums between two aircraft every two and a half years. One more and he/she gets suspended - and many of them are controlling around a hundred planes per hour. Think about that before you blame them for your late flights.
You land a million planes safely, then you have one little mid-air and you never hear the end of it.

a very complicated job in which a few choice select very brilliant individuals tell all so very dumb pilots what to do so as they dont fuck over the whole continent with delays and mid air collisions. therefore being the most important job in the world (doctors are not the most important) because you only need doctors if there are no air traffic controllers to provide the safe orderly and expoditios flow of air traffic.
dude your so smart that you should be an air traffic controller... you know the smartest people in the world.

One who keeps the little blips from running into each other.
The Air Traffic Controller is the one who "really" flies the planes in his or her airspace...NOT THE PILOTS.

Quite possibly the most important job in ensuring safety across the world. Making sure dumb ass pilots do not hit each other and making sure that passnengers can arrive on time regardless of what the pilots try to do to mess it up.
Wow, thanks to my great air traffic control skill, I helped 10,000 people take off and land safely and on time today.

similar to a wingman, an air traffic controller will help a fellow lad get a girl, `the big difference between a wingman and an air traffic controller, the air traffic controller will not engage with the girl, also the air traffic controller will help the lad with any problems that may arise in the lads pulling process.
