So almost the same job description as a burglar? laugh

Sometimes I train inanimate things.
Sometimes I build them.
Sometimes I take them apart
Sometimes I feed them.
Sometimes I train people.
I usually do not do the other things with people.

I need to explain this a bit first...

When people work out with weights, they tend to say they pump iron. I am not sure if that is a proper saying in English.

I tend to say I pump angry 2-year olds.

We also tend to say that we are major league athletes, as the job demands that we are active, generally working out all the time, lifting kids, running around, do activities with the kids.

It is, but it only works with inanimate objects like weights or iron.

When "pump" is used for people, it will mean something else. To pump someone for information is to interrogate the person. Otherwise, if it's physical, it might have a sexual meaning.

So, when you say,
Quote:

... that could be misunderstood. Maybe "wrestle," "wrangle," or "herd" would work better.

Not criticizing. Just saying how the language works. There are weird idioms in all languages.

Nope, I work in a thrift store and pick up stuff people no longer want. The first description sounds more exciting though
