Glad I'm not the only one. I spend three days futzing around unable to get
stuck into a problem, and then eventually manage a decent half days work to
get it done before the deadline. Then, while I'm worrying about having
wasted 2 1/2 days someone comes and says what a good document it was. I
don't get it.
I wouldn't mind if it weren't for the way other people in the office seem to
beaver away steadily.
