Oh yeah no doubt 

I’m sick of doing timesheets in replicon and  filling out preventive maintenance forms.
Not to mention work orders and expense reports.
But all of these things are to my advantage so I get paid well, now.

I was happy back in 1981 82 making $5.75 an hour at the Brendan Byrne Arena and Giants Stadium.(union job)
It wasn’t a glamorous job but it had its perks.
I used to find a lot of interesting things cleaning up that arena, meeting people / artists and always was first online to get tickets for concerts.

It had nothing to do with computers, but that was just a hobby at the time.

Later on, things became more interesting  because the company I currently work for, installed the audio systems in Giant stadium and the Byrne arena.
Now neither venue exists.

Such is life!
