Ah, the receptionist. Remember when you were a kid and you'd go to the doctor's office or your parent's office? Behind that big, shiny desk always sat a receptionist. Even before most people had computers, the receptionist had one. Always friendly, always in-the-know. How much fun it must be! Answering phones, making appointments, filing, telling people to have a seat until their appointment. Yes. Reception. It's almost a dream job. Sort of like how being a cashier also seemed like the coolest job ever to the average youngster.
It is not a dream job, but is a Boring Office Job (BOJ) where you find ways to entertain yourself while also finding ways to look like you're working while you entertain yourself. This is to be differentiated from the Stressful Office Job (SOJ). The key difference here being that people with SOJs have far more work than anyone could possibly do in a 40 hour week and lots of pressure to get it done and get it done right. People with BOJs on the other hand have far less work than anyone could stretch out over a 40 hour work week.
Have have a BOJ. This is my new method of passing time.
