As an employee? Choice of two:
1) Sitting in a library for a whole week, eight hours a day, watching a VDT to see when it glitched. Dull. Couldn't talk - it was a library. Couldn't read - despite it being a library, I had to watch the screen to see it go wrong. Couldn't do anything about the (on expenses) monumental Tequila hangover I arrived with each day - no eating or drinking in a library. It glitched on Friday afternoon, when they signed up a new member for the first time that week and the laminator spiked the mains ... not a software problem at all then ...

Or

2) Sitting at my desk going through a mountain of porn images downloaded by the General Manager of the company in working hours. His taste and mine did not coincide; I don't believe porn has any place in the office*; I definitely didn't want the office girls to see me looking; and I didn't want to find anything like what I was looking for. Why? Because the company owner asked me to check the lot for children ... Dead | X| Worst working day of my life.


* Unless you work for a company producing it, then it's to be expected.
