Yup, same situation here. I won't even try to describe what my company does, basically doing research on business x for big business y. Lots of repetitive key tapping, and yeah, it pretty much sucks. Fortunately most people I work with are decently cool, I can wear casual clothes, and I spend most of my time listening to music and audiobooks. Problem is though, I'm in the Seattle area and my office looks out onto the Puget Sound, having an excellent view of the water and mountains on the other side, bald eagles gliding around in the air and such. It could be a hell of a lot worse I suppose, but MAN does it get depressing sometimes.
I've worked my fair share of retail, and while that wasn't all great, it did have some moments. Problem is that most retail jobs pay crap, and a lot of times, the customers can be a real pain too. *sigh* I haven't found the perfect job yet, that's for sure, but cubicle life definitely sucks. When you can relate to Dilbert cartoons, you know you're in trouble. Plus there's the ongoing battle against "desk ass." blech. Calgon take me away!
