Fun Fact or Story: My first job out of college was as an auditor for a public accounting firm. I had a day where I was assigned to perform an inventory count for a client who sold sand and gravel. My entire 8 hour day was budgeted for me to go and confirm that there were actually 4 piles of sand. I can now truthfully say that I've been paid to count sand.
