Okay - that's not how I really feel, all the time. I work for an awesome company that has very exciting things going on, giving me amazing experience. What I dislike about it is how much I'm sitting and staring at computer screens, all. frappin. day. But....last week I got a second computer monitor - it basically changed my life.
Is that sad that I got so excited about getting a second computer screen? Wait, don't answer that.
Anyway, as is customary with most accountants, the months of January through March = busy season = hell. And no, not all accountants are busy during this time because of taxes (as is the common misconception). I'm in financial reporting, therefore my life revolves around a little document known as the 10K, our annual report that we file with the SEC.
When I haven't been sleeping, eating or running - it has been all 10K, all the time. So I was a little suprised when the following exchange took place at the gym this morning:
Co-worker (who just happens to also be Sal's boss): Hey, how is the 10K going?
Me: Oh....you mean the 10 miler?
Co-worker: No, I mean the 10K.
Co-worker: No, the work document...that you've been staying late for and working on every day. Our year-end financial statements.
Me: Ohhhh....that 10K - yeah it's coming along.
Oy vey...I need a vacay,
