I reckon accountants, especially Financial accountants, spend their days secretly frustrated that they dont make anything (new), but simply account for the others that do. I would rather be a scientist, even whinging about funding submissions, and being second-author, than a financial accountant any day.

Of course I'm happy to be a scientist! But the pain of writing my diss is pretty excruciating....some days, I feel like running away and working in a Migros in some mountain village....

But management--I'm not a physicists but a materials scientist (the friendlier physicists, from my experience--sorry physicists!!) but I've definitely lost ALL my people skills and have zero patience for meetings, how will I exist in the real world?
