I started a very short project yesterday. And about ten minutes in I was already mentally filing it under "Jobs from Hell." But I got the first part done, and emailed it over to where it belongs, (complete with an explanation that someone else needed to proof it, because there was a mistake I couldn't locate, and possibly fresh eyes would spot it).

Then I started work on phase 2 (which was not so much a job from hell, because at least I could read what I was looking at) and the Associate came over and said, "thank you. That was way beyond what we hoped for."

And suddenly it wasn't nearly so much a job from hell.
