If you feel that your job is more boring than anyone's on the poll then post and give your most sicking excuse why YOU should recieve the bragging rights to the "MOST BORING JOB!!!"
Im voting for Darkstar.................I know what he does (or doesn't)
Well, I hate my job. Not because it is boring, but because it sucks and I hate it. I voted for Axia's job. His job is so boring, he is actually happy to chat with me through IMs, when I know I'm a very dull person to talk to online.
pffft. I work at an accounting firm doing taxes and bookkeeping. Blarg. so boring.
I actually find myself quite busy, but during times when I have to install drivers or security updates on my 150 computers I end up finding time to post every once and a while during the day.
I can't really say my job is boring, see that would imply that I actually 'work', oh sure i work, but its not really 'work'' I just sit here in front of the computer until my boss comes in...... I mean....er....um.... I work hard......
hey I'm board waiting for a lab to ghost, so I found this article on slashdot.
Interesting article for those of us who are board.
That was very interesting and I think everyone here would enjoy reading it...
BUT! I don't think it will happen like this person is saying. I definatly think that there will be robots, but I do not think people would let robots take over ALL of the jobs. What sense would that make? All we would have to do is say, "Well, I like to have money, therefore, I must work." Even if robots DID take over the lower scale jobs, humans are creative. That is what will always separate us. If robots DO eventually become creative (won't be in this century) we still have emotion. Would you rather order your meal from a machine, who would be less likely to give you that free ranch dressing with your fries? Or a person who is lazy and won't bother to charge you the extra 45 cents or whatever for it? I'll take the human, thank you.
I want a robot!! Oh, sorry, did I say that out loud?
Jaded, I think that vendors will be able to program those behaviors into the robot, as they will see that that is an appeal to consumers.
Jaded: Can I get some ranch dressing on the side with those fries?
Masculine robot with eyelid articulation: Well, the order is already in, but don't worry, I'll bring some over to you [wink].
On a side note, did you notice that the AISIMO robot by Honda is like a child, in size and actions? I think this is not a mistake, but intentional. What better way to get an unsuspecting earth to accept robots- cute, playful, little children...
the real question is...are we already living in the Matrix...or is it still to come?
just thought I would bump this old post for fun
I am unemployed and cant find a job.that not only boring ,but frustrating.
My job is awesome, although I do work very strange hours.
you also say strange things in those hours.
What hours do you work Moka???
Some days I only work 4 or 5 hours, other days I work 12 to 16 hours, just depending on the day, the projects I have going on, and what I have to do that night (for instance if ALIAS is on I make sure to be home by 8:55).
pfft. my job is not boring anymore. I have been running around since 8 this morning.
Hooray for tax season for Acthar!!!
that is a good word. like ginormous.
YAY! I just now saw that I won this little contest... alas I don't have that job anymore, now I'm at starbucks... but I miss the sitting at the computer, reading a book, surfing the net, talking with Inaen, watching a movie during our lunch break kinda boredom... now I actually have to work, well not really, I mean it is still just starbucks...
I've said it once, but I'll say it again. Tis better to have a boring job than a strenuous one... take it from someone who knows.
I'll agree with that and add that 'tis also better to have a boring job than one in which you must work with raw sewage. (I did maintenance to work my way through college and it served to make me ever so glad that I was getting my degree so as never to have to do that again).
