Misused: What Exactly Is His Job get usage counts

Tired forever.
What, Exactly, Is His Job?, which is about a character not having a well-defined role or function within their team or group, keeps getting mistaken for Obliquely Obfuscated Occupation, despite the trope description explicitly stating the difference between the two tropes.

I cleaned up the trope page about a month ago and today I checked 35 of its 126 wicks, 2 were correct, 4 were so vague that I couldn't decipher their meaning, and the other 29 were all misuse. I think a rename might be in order.
What is this "sleep" you speak of?

I'll open this for now but we did look at this trope already, as I recall.
Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.

Old thread. Seemed to have died down without consensus.

Clock is set.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
