office jobs

At first the work had been tolerable from its novelty, but now it grew irksome; and when he discovered that he had no aptitude for it, he began to hate it. Often, when he should have been doing something that was given him, he wasted his time drawing little pictures on the office note-paper.
Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

William Styron, Sophie's Choice
