Let's see. I work in an environmentally controlled (comfortable)
environment. I'm sitting on my butt all day, well most of the day. I do
need to get up to get coffee or relieve the hydraulic pressure of the
coffee. And I'm doing interesting work that I love. Nope, I don't think
I'm in a sweat shop.

I've had so many worse jobs in so many worse places. I've even had
people trying to kill me. I haven't seen anything in Technical Writing
that I even thought was uncomfortable. Well, the air conditioning did
go off the other day, and I was sweating, but nah, it weren't nothin'.
