Right now, my primary job is on the Internet, so I do lots of online work. And, the most mundane part of my job would be following up on emails from potential customers and recruits. It's mostly mundane stuff that I've covered a billion times before, though, so it's easy. What about you? What's the most boring or mundane task you're asked to do on your daily job?

The most boring, and mundane job I do is to C&P (copy & paste) data from excel files to another excel file. I get to see like 15k entries from one file then I have to extract certain data to paste it on another 15k entries data file. That is definitely eye tearing. Well, besides that, I guess using internet, and mylot is a fun thing to do at work.

That does sound awefully boring! Link exchange is almost the same, like searching for the proverbial needle in the haystack. An hour of that and I'm ready to go to sleep.

well my job as a computer repair, whenever I replace the hardisk, re-intalling the windows, upgrading windows and re-intalling the software and back-up. It takes me almost the whole day to finish one. the boring thing is, waiting for the computer to finish by itself.
