Surgery is fucking insane. My parents have had their surgery videos on in the background ever since I was a little kid, but seeing it in person is a whole different ball of wax. My dad's in orthopedics, so there's a lot of sawing, a lot of chipping, a lot of drilling and a lot - I mean A LOT - of hammering. If you were ever under the impression that replacing a knee is a delicate process, let me assure you that it is not.
All in all, it was awesome. I know I only saw a small portion of what a sales rep does, but the part I saw was approximately fifty bagillion times better than being a lawyer. You get to work in an exciting environment, learn about tangible products and dress up in scrubs. Scrubs!
I know there are several cons to the job (long hours, lots of driving, commission, etc.), but today was cool. Tomorrow, I'm going to get a taste of the "logistics" aspect of the job, and they assure me it sucks. I'll keep you posted.
