Wishing I was anywhere but here...with this Brain Coral


Today was the first day I didn't like my job. Here's why...

After constructing a giant Brain Coral in SketchUp it was suggested that I erase the interior to reduce the file size. Sounds reasonable enough except the interior of this Brain Coral consists of thousands upon thousands of tiny lines that can only be erased one at a time. There isn't an ounce of creativity or imagination that can be employed with this sort of task. I know its necessary. I know it 'll be worth it in the end. I also know I'd rather have my hand slammed in a door while clutching shards of glass.

Don't get me wrong. I love my job. I look forward to coming to work as opposed to when I worked for the Olive Garden and would pray for a cement truck to hit me on my way to the restaurant so I wouldn't have to put on that ridiculous tie and deal with yet one more idiot who couldn't understand why there was a 2 hour wait on a Friday night for a party of 12. Or the diabetic who failed to eat ANYTHING, threatening insulin shock and litigation, so they could be seated immediately.

Today was just one of those days.
