1)The company still uses Windows 95

2)In the position your desk is, a large bookshelf is blocking your view of where the office fit bird sits.

3)Strangers can ring up and completely whine, bawl, and swear at you, and the worst thing you can say in response is "Sir, if you don't calm down I'm afraid I will have to cut you off".

4)Your desk drawer has pencils, rulers, marker pens, sellotape, tippex, envelopes, and a whole bunch of other stuff, but the only thing you ever need out of it is the pen

5)Your highlight of the working day is getting a new best time on Minesweeper

6)Going for a cigarette break means sliding down the bannister of nine flights of stairs James Bond style so you actually have time to take a puff on your cig before the allocated 10 minutes elapses.

7)You find yourself turning up to work with an un-ironed shirt, chin stubble, and dark patches around the eyes from when you lay awake trying to think up and excuse for not going to the staff xmas party.

8)Janet the 17yr old work placement student beats you to the "Employee of the month" award.

9)Your housemate is an UNPAID radio apprentice yet still comes home of a night with a bigger smile than the one you bear.

10)You find yourself daydreaming about how Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood life was when you were unemployed.

Another Version

1)The company still uses 1981 software

2)Your desk has been relocated. To the lift.

3)Strangers can ring up and frighten you with the knowledge that they know where you live.

4)Your desk drawer will not open.

5)Your highlight of the working day is "accidently" touching a female collegue

6)Going for a cigarette break means a 5 minute deep freeze in the pouring rain

7)You find yourself turning up to work with a hangover you could feature in a documentary

8)You find out that the cleaner is on more money than you

9)Your housemate always pulls yet he's skint.

10) Your only hope of salvation is retirement.

i really cant wait to get a real job. id do anything to work in an office. ANYTHING is better than working as a cashier at a supermarket. i hate my job http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif :( http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

all of you with those desk jobs! id be soo grateful! you dont have to deal with customers *****ing at you every single day over something that was wrong and isnt your fault. no matter what you gotta deal with the a-hole managers. and no matter what you gotta deal with the sucky breaks. for working 6 hours i only get a 10 minuet break. if its 6 1/2 you have to tell whoever is running the front of the store that you want a half hour break or else theyll just give you a 10.

*takes a breath*

i feel better now.

sorry just venting http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif but really, id kill for a desk job.

I'm a hairdresser, I love my job, and I don't think sitting on your butt in a cubicle all day is healthy by any means. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif :eek:

Incidentally, before people start thinking my life has gone seriously downhill, I will just point out that only 1,2,3,4 and 9 are actually true for me. Can't have such a list without having ten though can you?
