We're all just victims of circumstance

I've been working on computers for 26 years. At work I'm the WAN guy. The two system admins and I are all ready to chunk it, because quite frankly this computer s**t is boring.

Anyway, to go with your theme, our catch phrase is "Would you like fries with that?" when our boss makes some idiotic request. She just rolls her eyes wthout realizing how serious we are at times.

I walked away from a job at Compaq that payed damned good money, but the work atmosphere was very oppressive. The day they took my ID and escorted me out the door you wouldn't believe the number of guys who congratulated me and said they wished they had guts enough to quit.


And you thought Trek isn't cool.

You're right.  This computer s**t is boring yet I can't seem to see myself in any other line of work.  I love computers, but having to deal with customers every single day who have no idea what they are doing can wear old real quick.

All technical careers have this sort of endpoint, unfortunately (IMHO).  One of the consequences of being "good" often is that it gets less interesting until you get a hard case, because everything else is routine.

That is why it's very bad for a doctor to think that you're medically "interesting," for a surgeon to think that you are a "tough case."
