I work in IT. I sit in a fabric covered box and fix stuff that breaks. I write memos that no one ever reads and go to meetings that are absolutely pointless. I obey the impossible and insane commands of the freaks I work for, who get huge bonuses for screwing things up while I can't even get a raise for fixing what they break. My goal is to get a job that provides me with some sense of satisfaction while removing me from working for complete lunatics and idiots. But if I were a betting man I'd say the odds of that happening are roughly about the same as me driving my car to Mars.

I know, I know, more than you wanted to know.....I work in IT would have sufficed....
