It occurs to me that in many jobs if you took us out and replaced us with monkeys it would be considered cruelty to make them do what we do. I'm pretty sure there are rules against making a monkey stare at a screen full of credit card transactions for seven and a half hours a day.

Of course a monkey wouldn't put up with the nonsense most of us have to deal with. No - poop would be flung.

Interesting observation there sir. Us RAs here are widely referred to as trained monkeys. ALthough to be honest a lot of my job could be done by an untrained monkey.

I don't think there's many jobs couldn't be done by a particularly clever monkey - I just resent the way those damned dirty apes get preferential treatment

Yes. It's wrong. And I suspect if we tried the apes approach to showing our displeasure a sacking would be the only thing we'd achieve.
