Jean calls herself an administrative assistant, but she's more like nerfherder.

A nerfherder was someone who herded nerfs on various planets throughout the galaxy. As it was solely an occupation for lower-class beings, the term "nerfherder" became an insult used throughout the galaxy

An up and coming indoor sport requiring agility, hand eye coordination, strength, and the ability to endure hits. It is a one on one game with a pitcher/goalie (goal-itcher) and a swinger/batter (wing-atter). The goal-itcher pitches a foam ball to the wing-atter down a pitching lane, who tries to hit the ball back past the goal-itcher into a define goal. The goal-itcher wins a game when they catch two hits, and the swatter wins the game when they make 5 goals. A nerfherder match is won when a player leads by two matches.

An insult that is so lame that it actually backfires on the insulter by insulting his/her intelligence. The original nerfherder was told by Princess Leah in Star Wars: the Empire Strikes Back.
