Today, I have been doing two things at work.

1) Forwarding emails
2) Looking up zip codes

San Antonio, TX 75024

I am forwarding emails because the woman who usually forwards the emails is out of the office. I do get some satisfaction from the fact that when I took over as the resident forwarder last Wednesday my colleague was 2 days behind in the forwarding of the email and I am completely caught up. But since it I is only a matter of looking something up, hitting forward and typing a name, the satisfaction is very, very minor. Uber minor.

I am looking up zip codes because - well because apparently looking up zip codes is now my job. I was given a very long list and I have to find the zip codes. I used to have a real job, really I did. I did important things. I had a lot of responsibility. I really liked it. Now I look up zip codes. This is honestly through no fault of my own, just one of the things that happens when you work where I work. I would really prefer that I had done something that had gotten me where I am, because then I could at least tell myself that I am sitting here looking up zip codes because I screwed up or mouthed off to the wrong person or whatever. But no, nothing like that.

Ah, but here is where it gets really sad. I am doing all of my own work and covering for two other people who are out of the office and I still do not have enough to do to keep me busy all day. This afternoon has already been about 4 days long. So, what do you do when you have a job that is a waste of your time and rotting your brain, but is also comfortable, convenient, and very well compensated?

Ah... well... from where I sit (unemployed and broke)... it doesn't sound too bad.... But I have been where you are, and yeah, it's not fun when you can practically hear the little death shriek of each brain cell as it goes....

"So, what do you do when you have a job that is a waste of your time and rotting your brain, but is also comfortable, convenient, and very well compensated? Yes, that IS the question. Tough call.

A lot of those zip codes you mentioned are near me (Benicia, CA 94510). So, what's your location? :)

Ok, but what do you do with the zip codes once you've looked them up?

I want to get a pet duck and keep it in the bathtub.
I am addicted to chap stick and altoids.
I am freakishly flexible.
