Mason Grace, a special thank you from me. I appreciate your gift very much.
This page is already late so I’m gonna cut the rambling short.
When I was working with a bunch of 20 year-olds, they were very dumb and immature. And drank too much.
When I was working with a bunch of 30 year-olds, they were too consumed with families, babies, sex and family roles.
When I was working with a bunch of 50 year-olds, they were all worried about sports cars, wife swapping, and getting too old for fun.
It doesn’t matter what you do, there are stereotypes and there will seem to be a lot of matches. And many exceptions.
Good strip Jackie, it made me think, instead of panic about DC. (The City, not the printers)
It IS nice to have a distraction from that ongoing dumpster fire, isn’t it?
If it’s like most of my office jobs, it’s more like Between Faxes and Filing.
As part of my computer degree, I had to take accounting. I figured “how hard can it be? It’s only two decimal places!” Between the professor’s attitude of “do what I teach you exactly the way I say, or thousands of years of civilization will crumble around you and cease to exist,” and the way I could never get two columns of the same numbers arranged differently to come out equal, well, let’s just say that I’m self-taught in computers…
I respect the ones who made it all the way through accounting in college. It would have driven me absolutely, psychotically (in a pathological murderer kind of way), insane.
I think the Chinese have done it for ages with an abacus.
The mathematics of accounting is straightforward. The vastly varied ways people use and abuse wealth are not, so the rules used to reduce them to an understanding of what’s really going on are not simple either.
Don’t the vast majority of accounting jobs not involve fitting in with other accountants? Almost every company I’ve worked for has had one accountant.
That’s because a second accountant would see the embezzlement and demand a cut of the action…
But also because the second accountant was called an Auditor.
Well, I always assume there’s one honest man or woman in every loop and almost every auditor has an auditor.
