One-upmanship

From my e-mails:

It’s definitely starting to feel very painful. I met up with a friend in the venture business tonight, and he was complaining (very mildly) that it’s just not fun anymore. I responded that most jobs aren’t fun these days, and it’s not because our jobs changed.
--Venture capitalist

My job is the opposite of fun.
--Citigroup employee

My job is where fun goes to die.
--Medical resident

My job actively seeks out and exterminates fun.
