Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. But seriously! Typing data into Excel? I have to go through this routine each and every month. The first day of the month comes around and I have to print out a bunch of reports with numbers on them. I then have to sift through the twenty to thirty pages to find about two hundred numbers that I have to type into twelve different spreadsheets. I then e-mail each of the spreadsheets out to twenty-five different people with each one getting one or two of the reports. I have to do this process five to seven days in a row. Finally, the boss says that the books are closed.
You think that would be good – NOT!
I then spend the rest of the month looking up the details of what makes up these numbers for the twenty-five managers. Sometimes, a number takes four to five hours to research.
