“desk jockey”

Anyone whose job involves sitting behind a desk most of the time can be called a “desk jockey.” The individual remains glued to his desk most of the time. Bank officers, accountants and most government officials can be called “desk jockeys.” These people are either constantly shuffling papers or on the phone most of the time. If you are a “desk jockey”, maybe you should consider calling yourself a “D.J”. Who knows, people may start looking at you differently!
