He is a FAA retired inspector - he was an Operations inspector meaning he was involved with the flight crew members (pilots, First officers, recurrent training, check rides, etc) of the air carrier we were assigned to.
While I was an Airworthiness Inspector (mechanics, repairmen, manuals,etc) on the same carrier.
If you remember - you and I were on a certain thread and you said you don't always follow the manual and I replied with the FAA position of following the manual in aviation is required and certain bad things can happen when the manual is not followed which started a string of replies, good and bad.
