I wrote this at work one night, at the time I was running a punch press that punched holes in a reel of plastic sheet for the duration of a 12 hour shift.

BOREDOM
a slow moving stream of plastic passes before me
and I feel a need for something drastic as this bores me!
I measure my pace and do thorough quality checks
I tighten, then loosen the controls as needed to keep the product in spec
I do all the mechanical adjustments and insure my time is well spent
So..,how come I catch Hell from management when my efficiency is less than 120 per cent?
