I’ve figured out why accountants are dry.
It’s an effect of the position.
In general, not many in the profession watch the news or sports because from January to April they live at their jobs. If they are on the auditing side of the house they live at the job or jobs January to August.
We are then plagued with having no conversation topics to engage in. We live our work, but we can’t talk about it.
The effect is “damn he/she is the most boring person I’ve ever met.”
We are not boring, however, time has taught us silence is the golden circle to live in.
I need to work less and have more to talk about!
