Hey doughboy and GTGirl, the way I see it, just answer the questions....
I have sold photo equipment for nearly a decade, now, and its surprising how far a mildly flip attitude can take you. A typical exchange happened this past week. A father and daughter came in, she with a point and shoot which had stopped working. "There's a roll of film in it." the father told me, a point that I already knew. "We don't want the film exposed."
"Well," I told the father, "I'll be quite careful when I hit it with my hammer."
"Oh," said dad, "you're a real comedian, aren't you?"
"No, sir." I replied. "I'm an imitation comedian. The real one has the day off."
The daughter, who was quite cute (but too young, and I'm too married), smiled. The camera got fixed, of course, without any further input from dad (except payment.).
As I see it, you could get bored with any job. But you could just as easily enjoy any job....
