We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
Are they making chopsticks?
I found that working for a living could occasionally be fun or even fulfilling. But generally it oscillated between boredom and fear, with little in between.
I lived near this wonderful old company on the Essex/Suffolk border, and used them to match bricks in a garden wall that was part of a commission I was working on.Despite being fascinated with what was going on and admiring the skills involved, much of the work was very repetitive and must have been very boring for the workforce.http://www.bulmerbrickandtile.co.uk/
If they were dealing with blogs then they might be splitting hairs.
Frank - I initially though chopsticks too, but they are making wooden roof shingles.Sackers - I'm sure my minutes weren't priceless gems. I'd have remembered.Sam - I had some fun and fulfilling times too, but I don't recall much fear.Wiggia - years ago we visited the Wedgwood factory. A chap painting china figures said he enjoyed the job until ISO 9000 (I think) came in.Demetrius - now that can be interesting.
