I actually like being part of the testing process when I can do it my way.
One time and one time only, I participated in the official "test run" of a
software. We sat and clicked on the same series of buttons over and
over and over and over. Luckily, they only required two hour shifts. If I
would have had to do it any longer, I think I would have screamed.

I can understand why the original poster was frustrated if that is what he
up against.
