What does 'goldstift' stand for?

'goldstift' is a nickname I got from one of my bosses when I was a trainee. It is actually a combined word of the two words "gold" (referencing the valuable metal) and "stift" which is a colloquial German word for "trainee". Back then all trainees at our company were called "Stift". My boss and my colleagues said, they really valued my work, so they started to call me "goldstift".

I felt very flattered by this appreciation and some time later I adopted the nickname.
