Quotes / Bob from Accounting

Go To

Counselor: Well I now have the results here of the interviews and the aptitude tests that you took last week, and from them we've built up a pretty clear picture of the sort of person that you are. And I think I can say, without fear of contradiction, that the ideal job for you is chartered accountancy.
Anchovy: But I am a chartered accountant.
Counselor: Jolly good! Well back to the office with you then.
Anchovy: No! No! No! You don't understand, I've been a chartered accountant for the last twenty years. I want a new job. Something exciting that will let me live.
Counselor: Well chartered accountancy is rather exciting isn't it?
Anchovy: Exciting!? No it's not! It's dull! Dull! Dull! My God it's dull, it's so desperately dull and tedious and stuffy and boring and des-per-ate-ly DULL!
Counselor: Well, er, yes Mr. Anchovy, but you see your report here says that you are an extremely dull person. You see, our experts describe you as an appallingly dull fellow, unimaginative, timid, lacking in initiative, spineless, easily dominated, no sense of humour, tedious company and irrepressibly drab and awful. And whereas in most professions these would be considerable drawbacks, in chartered accountancy they're a positive boon.
