A time when you should be very, very quite.
Crap caught by auditors.
Idiot customers who, of course, always think they are right.
Anyone who leaves painfully pointless and slow voice mails.
The stupid software we are all slaves to.
Running up a few flights of stairs in an effort to appear busy and flustered, like you have actually been hard at work.
When your boss claims that if you work hard enough you’ll get invited to the next management boodoggle.
The often strange and always unnerving overseers from the outside.
The mixture of fear of nervousness you feel when dealing with the dreaded Compliance Department.
