Data Entry…… Yuck!!

by on Jan.21, 2010, under General

Data entry has to be the most boring, unfulfilling job in the world. I would put a ‘in my opinion’ here, but I’ve always been baffled by that phrase… I’m certainly not stating another persons opinion and before this becomes a rant, since it’s my blog it would most certainly be MY OPINION. Back to the topic at hand. I bring the subject of Data Entry up as i just spent the last 3hrs. of my life entering data into our ON LINE STORE and then into our Calendar. Now i could spend hours upon days rummaging through HTML and PHP code just looking for a script to customize and be alright with that. Or work inside Dreamweavers split view making things happen and be alright with that too. I think it’s because there’s more of a reward as your work unfolds in front of you. As for inputting crummy ole’ data into not one, but TWO separate databases and then creating customized links to join them together to that i say, send me into a dusty crawlspace any day or how about an attic, filled with spray insulation in mid Summer to reach an air-handler that is so far back not only do i have to crawl on my knees on the skinny sides of 2×4’s in the 120 degree swelter, but i need to watch my head from the roofing nails sticking through the sheeting, all while lugging my tools behind me only to get situated and realize my invoice book is slightly out of my reach. So maybe data entry isn’t that bad in retrospect, but it isn’t nice!

BTW, Store’s up and calendar is up through 1st week in Feb. Enjoy

    Hilarious, but I know what you mean. I remember doing HTML in college back in the dark ages. The painted mental picture of the crawl space is classic, been there, done that.
