Howard related because he obviously hates his job and his clients. In my younger days, I had every shitty job you can imagine, from digging ditches to cleaning toilets. But, hands down, the worst job I ever had was when I first moved to the San Francisco Bay Area during the original dot.com boom. I worked at an Internet startup and was supposed to be doing technical research for the Company. What I quickly realized is that "corporate research" does not exist (at least in that product space) and is really just an extension of the sales and marketing department. I felt like a total tool, leading people on to talk to me about the products in that particular space. Not only that, but only the "positive" parts of my "research" ended up in the corporate reports. The negative parts just never seemed to make it to print. I lasted three months. I literally would clean toilets again before doing that shit.
