OK. From the sound of it, you are doing a really useful job ( what a greater mess life would be if there were not people doing jobs like this ) though I agree it may not feel exciting or anywhere near as wrothwhile as it is, and maybe not fulfilling, especially if you had and have larger ambitions for yourself.
You don't mention what your "career" is, as you see it, as you want it to be. I'm puzzled - if everyone else at the office can aford a car, why is this - do they earn more than you ? Is there any prospect of doing some job-related studies with funding from the company ?
If people genuinely didn't believe that you knew what you were doing, they would hardly ask you to help them with any of their work. And unless you were reliably OK at what you do, they wouldn't keep you in that job, as it'd cause such problems for them all.
Within a set job, of course you WON'T get experience of anything else, unless this gets built into your work. And its no excuse for them not to move you into more interesting work. Isn't there an HR dept or person you coulddiscuss this wirth, with a view to job enrichment, and training in other areas of the company's work ?
One thing that would start to help, would be to start to cvlarify and define your dreams ( we never reach our dreams if we're not sure what exactly they are and can't plan to get there from here ). Isnt it posible to explore looking for a different job with more customer contact, for instance, which you might enjoy more ?
