think your job is boring? think again.
from the article:
Ryan H was pretty excited to start his new job as a developer. But his excitement quickly faded after he started. It didn’t fade into apprehension, disappointment, or regret — just into nothing; he simply stopped feeling anything at all. This type of apathy is to be expected when one is given the type of assignment that Ryan was given: absolutely nothing. Ryan’s day to day job was to sit and patiently wait for the company to start up a project.
great piece of writing, this, and quite the cautionary tale. if this had been my job, i’d have headed for the hills.
by the way, in acknowledgment of posts like this, which are made in lieu of actual creativity and original thought, i have created a new category: lazy-day reposts.
