Well... it's official. The scientists have confirmed it!

Accountants (particularly tax accountants... pay attention, Taxi) are boring! %-6

According to detailed research into what makes people interesting and a large survey of various professions, workplaces and people, accountants scored the lowest of any survey group.

What a surprise!

A few truths arising from this are:
What do you call an accountant seen talking to someone? Popular
What's an extroverted accountant? One who looks at your shoes when he's talking to you, instead of his own.
What's an accountants idea of trashing his hotel room? Refusing to fill out the guest comment card.
What does an accountant use for birth control? His personality.

The accountant would be me, Proc . After all... can you think of anybody else that even vaguely resembles normal (let alone dead boring normal) in TGS?

Just because I have the misfortune to be an accountant (dad made me *sobs*) doesn't mean I actually have to think like one.

I'm not really an accountant though. I'm a kick-ass auditor (paranoia does have it's upside) who can go virtually anywhere I want and look at anything I want and talk to anyone I want. Almost makes up for the working-hours :-<.

Besides... I'm actually a full-time gamer/writer. I just occasionally have to do some work to support my habits . THAT's why I can make a poll taking the piss.

P.S. I stuck the newspaper article up in my cubicle... nobody else in the office laughed though. They all take themselves WAY too seriously .

I was an accountant for four years. Fours years of wasted life. The only thing I got out of that was the ability to use my number pad at unbelievable speeds.
