When I hear the word jobber I think of pitchmen or sales. The guys who buy from the supplier is a jobber.

In wrestling (and I don't know what 'doing the job' means) a jobber is an insult and is someone who is working without a contract and tend to lose all the time (can't have a jobber lose to a name guy). The term 'jabroni' is a play on the word jobber and calling someone that is like saying they are a nobody. This may be the same thing you are saying.

I still go with a jobber being a middleman.

Of course from 43-man squamish we owe the wisdom

Does that apply to two-man squamish as well?

Pretty universal, no?

The "Rock"'s favorite word was Jabroni. He was the only reason I watched wwf five years ago, he was funny

"Throw in the towel"!

43 Man Squamish is one of the funniest things I ever read.
