There was a time I felt the same. I loved the art of beating files into submission.

Now my tech is years behind, the boss has lost interest, most customers don't care about quality and files, while better, are made by clueless hacks. I still have pride in my work, when I don't is when I leave.

But you are right, that comment isn't correct.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

I complain a lot but there are a lot worse jobs and I've had several of them before I came to prepress. So I'm pretty happy too. But I try to keep that a secret. Shhhhh......

That's why it's called work.

I love working on cars, doing it for a living sucked. I love cooking, doing it for a living sucks.

I've had worse jobs.

Horses? Lucky. I shoveled pig shit. We called it, "the soupy."

So while we're on the topic of worst jobs...   Resurfacing tennis courts.  I spent one summer with my brother doing this. It is still done by wheelbarrow, and large squeegee. One man pulls the squeegee back and forth in lines across the length of the court, while another man runs (YES RUNS) back and forth with the wheelbarrow full of acrylic paint using a bucket to put a line out in front of the squeegee man. If the squeegee man takes too long or his line runs too thin it will streak, or create ridges. Once you start, you cannot stop until you are at the other side NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. Yes, I had instances where my wheel barrow was too full and I dumped it (or splatter some) and the squeegee man had to speed up to get to where the spill was before it dried. 

That doesn't even account for the hole digging for the net posts. You have to go about 3-4 times deeper than you would think because of the tension on the net. If the posts aren't deep enough the posts will bend in when you tighten the net.

All this was done in the 100 degree summer temps.

Not fond of this summer in my life. Not fond at all...

I did work in call center doing tech support for dsl. It was ok, but then one day they decided to make us cold call possible clients. That part SUCKED severely.

hey

If I think myself on your side, then probably, I would love to open a T-shirt printing shop with even small printers. Today everybody wants personalized products to be it tshirt, hoodies, and also like caps or mugs. There are lots of web to print software provider in the market like Design'N'Buy. These providers have the latest web to print software and are affordable in range too.
