Remember the episode of I Love Lucy where Lucy and Ethel go to work in the chocolate factory? Of course you do, everybody does!

Well, one of the jobs that the guy from the employment agency offers them before he sends them to the chocolate factory is "comptometer operator." A comptometer was a mechanical calculator, sort of an early adding machine. Between computers and electronic calculators, I'm betting there aren't any comptometer operators around anymore.

Another job he offers them is "PBX operator." I don't know, are there still PBX systems anywhere?
