Response to Warpy (Reply #22)

28. Not all office work is "watching screens all day."

That would be like saying nursing is just "jabbing people with needles and gabbing at the nurses' station all day."

My office job was physically demanding -- doing repetitive tasks, while sitting down. At the end of the day, I had a headache. My arms and shoulders ached. My back was starting to go out on me.

You need to walk in someone else's shoes before you characterize their work. (And yes, I have done patient care in a hospital -- and in the field -- so I know what nurses do.)
