I'm a medical technologist--I look for germs in patient specimens, including the-virus-that-must-not-be-named. :?

I feel your pain! I'm a senior audit manager in a large accounting firm and I alternate between answering unproductive emails and taking unproductive calls, as opposed to actually doing any accounting :lol:

I send those emails in the capacity of The Client.

I get money from the government for being semi-sick and semi-unemployed while also doing a few things but it's a long story and you don't want to know the red tape involved kthxbye

Basically I'm partially disabled :D

Stop saying "Yeah, I know how you feel."
How could anyone know how another feels?
