Do You Hate Your Job?
If you have a financial job, read The Housing Bubble Blog.
If you have any other kind of job, read the Chronicles of George, who writes the worst help tickets in the universe. I believe my personal favorite is "X called he recieving is not to turn on his machine." This is a native English speaker, btw. On the other hand, "X needed to know how to replicate" is a close second.
I think George does it on purpose, to inject a note of adventurous mystery into the techs' lives. Because let's face it, when you get a message like "X is havening problems printing certain pages from Microsoft", don't you feel a surge of curiosity? Don't you start wondering which pages and which application? Don't you find that motivational?
Mind you, if you spend too much time reading you won't have a job. George will, because he has friends in high places.
