Being an accountant has, like, ZERO cool factor. When people ask what you do, and you say "accountant" most of the time you get a "how nice" or an "I hate math!" or something similar. Never shock and awe. Never jealousy. Never, ever a sincere that's so cool.
Henceforth, when people ask what I do for a living, I'm going to say
Bet they ask for my business card THEN.
