I recently completed a visiting student rotation in Critical Care. During this rotation, I noticed that 70% of my attending physician's time and effort on the job was spent on documentation. In other words, only 30% of his work was actually clinical in nature.
While I've always agreed with David Graeber's notion of Bullshit Jobs, this was the first time I had seen it so blatantly with my own eyes. It really drove home the idea that many of us could be working a lot less than we currently do and still produce the same output.
I'm curious: What is the worst example of a Bullshit Job you have personally seen? What was it about the work that was Bullshit?
