And sometimes it’s the people you work with

...and not the job itself.  I was working for a pretty large company on a compliance team on a game expansion.  The game involved complete character customization and it was pretty fun to try breaking save data or game data with different combinations.  However there was one guy on my team that would do the same thing….....for 9 hours a day.

He would sit and create a house with 3 people in it, make those characters either look like: X-Men, Vampires or Anime Characters.  He would then spend the remainder of the day trying to have a 3 way with these characters.  Sitting next to this person was a difficult job in itself, trying to test standards while a guy sits next to you breathing heavily and asking “Yo, how I get these bitches in bed with me, man?”

You stay classy guy ;)
